Areas of Expertise


Gender and Environmental Sustainability

Gender and environmental sustainability are inextricably interlinked. Women’s unequal participation in the environmental decision-making processes hinders their sustained resilience against environmental challenge, most notably climate change.



Gender and Democracy

Gender equality and inclusive electoral and socio-economic practices are crucial for the establishment of a functioning democracy. Participation, inclusion and citizenship rights are just as fundamental to the success of a functioning democratic state as are elections, systems of check and balances and a range of political parties.



Gender and Minorities

Gender Concerns International advocates proportional representation of ethnic and cultural minorities into Dutch political and policy making structures. We believe that the progressive integration of minorities into national and international representative bodies is the key for social harmony and societal balance.



Gender Justice in Conflict and Peace

In the last 20 years, the majority of the poorest countries have suffered from war. After establishing peace almost half of these countries relapsed in the former state of conflict. Most post-war reconstruction strategies, which aim to help the whole population in the area of conflict, neglect the uniqueness and different needs of disparate groups in the society.



Gender and Disaster Management

Women are particularly affected by disasters, according to the World Health Organisation. The account for over seventy five percent of displaced persons, and are particularly vulnerable to reproductive and sexual health problems, all the while taking the roles of caretakers in the post-disaster context and losing their sources of income.
