Unpacking Gendered Realities in Displacement: The status of Syrian refugee women in Jordan (Report)

Authors/editor(s): IPSOS Group SA.

Unpacking gendered realities in displacement: the status of Syrian refugee women in Jordan examines how gender-based discrimination interplays with displacement, poverty and instability, increasing refugee Syrian women’s risks to violence and physical isolation in Jordan. The study also seeks to better understand the changing nature of gender dynamics, women’s roles and responsibilities in displacement, access to humanitarian aid and experiences of violence. The findings reinforce and complement those of previous reports by UN Women and other partners, and highlight that gender discrimination and vulnerability continue in displacement and must be acknowledged and addressed.
