Project: Research

Project Description

The project (part of the Monash-Warwick Alliance) explores the impact of the costs of social reproduction as depletion in the absence of a well-developed social infrastructure supporting women within households in the face of conflict and displacement. The pilot will clarify concepts, develop research networks on the ground, and help us ask better questions towards a large scale, high-impact research project supported by a development partner. It will also inform analysis of the challenges and the opportunities in transitions from conflict for gender-sensitive economic reform that takes seriously women’s agency. In so doing it will address the UN Sustainable Development Goals 5, 8 and 16. The research evidence produced has the potential to shape new policies and interventions that will contribute to lasting peace and inclusive economic prosperity.
