Overview

The majority of the world's refugees are females and they represent the epitome of marginalization and disenfranchisement.

The volume provides critical insights into how to shore up women's rights in conflict and post-conflict situations by focusing on the way the experience of dislocation 'infantalises' and disempowers women in particular.
