Gender and Social Inclusion

Understanding the links between gender and social inclusion and peace, stability, accountability and prosperity is fundamental to Integrity’s work. We integrate a strong gender and social inclusion perspective into all our research and programming, making it our business to include hard to reach populations.

Thematic

Thematic:

Negative attitudes and violent behaviours that discriminate and target women, girls, and minorities continue to be prevalent and wide-spread in many contexts globally. This hostility is a major inhibitor of social, economic and political development and drives marginalisation, suffering and conflict.

Challenge

Challenge:

Violence against women, girls and minorities is a critical challenge. It represents a serious obstacle to delivering a fundamental human right and a persistent driver of exclusion, poverty and disempowerment. One in three women experience some form of physical or sexual violence in their lifetime. The abuse causes acute psychological, health, social and economic suffering and often has long-term negative consequences within families, communities and wider-society.

What We Do

What we do:

Understanding the links between gender and social inclusion and peace, stability, accountability and prosperity is fundamental to Integrity’s work.

We integrate a strong gender and social inclusion perspective into all our research and programming, making it our business to include hard to reach populations.

We work to understand the particular challenges faced by women, girls and minorities, address the underlying causes, and support their full and leading participation in peace-processes, public services, debate and policy-making, justice and security, cultural expression, donor programming and economic growth.
