This collection of articles explores the interface between gender and humanitarian work. Several contributors focus on humanitarian activity during natural disasters, or analyse responses to conflict. Others consider the post crisis period of reconstruction, and provide lessons and recommendations for conflict resolution and peace-building. While the difficulties of integrating gender equity goals into interventions are acknowledged, the authors argue that gender-blind responses can further endanger the survival of women and their families, weaken their long-term position in society, and also deny them the opportunity to exercise their potential as peace-builders.
