Life can change: Securing housing, land and property rights for displaced women

This report represents NRC’s first reflection of both the challenges faced by displaced women and the positive results that can be achieved through the provision of legal assistance in a way that is sensitive to women’s needs and the context in which they live. The evidence base is drawn from six countries – primarily from NRC’s legal assistance (ICLA) programmes for displaced communities in Afghanistan, Ecuador, Lebanon, Liberia, Palestine (Gaza), and South Sudan.

Despite the wide range of displacement contexts, NRC identified clear common themes from the research, presented in Key Findings.

Recommendations for NGOs, UN agencies and donors are presented in the report and summarised in Recommendations.
