Volume 3 of our #GenderCash collection launches in English and French for Human Rights Day

We are delighted to announce the addition of three new research papers to our ‘Collected Papers on Gender and Cash Transfer Programmes in Humanitarian Contexts.’ The submissions come include a paper from Women’s Refugee Commission, a joint paper from Women’s Refugee Commission and International Rescue Committee, and a joint paper from Girls Education South Sudan and Charlie Goldsmith Associates.

The launch of volume 3 of the collection coincides with Human Rights Day and the culmination of the international campaign, ’16 Days of Activism against Gender Based Violence.’ From 25 November, the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, to 10 December, Human Rights Day, this campaign is a time to galvanize action to end violence against women and girls around the world.

All papers in the collection are now also available in French.

CaLP’s collection of research papers aims to fill the evidence gap around gender and cash, to ensure the benefits of cash and voucher assistance are felt by all.

The Collection was originally launched on Wednesday 12 September 2018 with submissions from UN Women, Concern Worldwide and World Food Programme. On Monday 15 October 2018, we added submissions from Trinity College Dublin/University College Dublin and World Food Programme West Africa’s Vulnerability Analysis and Mapping (VAM) Unit’s Gender and Markets Initiative. This builds on research presented at CaLP’s Gender Symposium which took place in Nairobi in February 2018.
