Growing international and internal migrations and forced displacements have special implications for the possibility of WEE, and associated improvements in gender equality and women’s rights. This scoping study focuses on:

  • documenting the state of practice of WEE in the context of migration and forced displacement.
  • identifying and documenting programmes that provide relevant examples of possible initiatives, successes, and lessons learned.
  • identifying gaps in current knowledge and approaches for further study.
  • recommending potential private sector development initiatives in the field.
