Center for Study of Gender and Conflict
The center trains highly skilled practitioners and scholars through education, consulting, and in-depth assessments of conflict and its effects.
We address the structures that sustain gender conflict; equitable, lasting change is only possible when intervention includes political, cultural and social structures. We want our efforts to be:
- Sustainable: We prioritize addressing the social, cultural and political structures that drive gender inequality and conflict, while supporting women and men in transforming their communities
- Constructive: We use collaborative, field-based methods that include multiple perspectives when designing, implementing, and evaluating solutions.
- Measurable: Resolutions require the participation of the community as a whole. We look for places in which small changes can make a difference.
- Effective: We use innovative evaluation and monitoring methods to determine a program's success.
Our work focuses on such topics as:
- Gender and Conflict in Mindanao
- Gender Inequality and the Measurement Trap
- Victims of Rape and Genocide: All Wars
- The Intimacy of Terror: Gender and Violence in Indonesia
