Gender Dynamics within Syrian Civil Society: A Research Based on Gender-Sensitive Assessment of Syrian Civil Society Organisations
In collaboration with IMPACT: Civil Society Research and Development and the Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom (WILPF), CTDC has participated in research exploring internal and external factors influencing women’s positionalities within Syrian Civil Society. The research methodology was designed utilising an intersectional feminist lens, which took into consideration the different variables that could potentially influence women’s involvement into CSOs such as culture, traditions, political and security situation, donor agendas and policies. This approach takes into account the fact that women’s experiences are not homogenous and are influenced by several factors, and to understand the causes of oppression and gender injustice, it is important to understand the conditions that could potentially create it. The research paper is available in English and in Arabic.
