Bangladesh: Gaps in gender research in the Rohingya refugee response
Created: 07/03/2022 +

Overview

The progress in gender analysis has been steady but inconsistent. Since 2017, there has been an improvement in exploring and including gender in research and analysis in the Rohingya refugee response. This progress includes an increase in the number of stand-alone gender assessments and the inclusion of gender as a cross-cutting theme in assessments and responses.

These analyses provide a specific understanding of gendered needs and explore how these needs intersect with other dimensions, such as age, disability, social status, education, income, legal status, and religion. But despite the developments, several gaps in understanding shifts in gender norms and practices in the Rohingya community and their impact on specific populations still exist.
