This annotated bibliography provides resources for understanding social reproduction, especially the gendered dimensions and costs of social reproductive labour in conflict-affected environments. The underlying concern is that non-recognition and under-valuing of social reproduction (including care work) within households and communities leads to human depletion. Depletion occurs when human resource outflows exceed resource inflows as a result of carrying out social reproductive work over a threshold of sustainability, making it harmful for those engaged in it (Rai, Hoskyns, & Thomas, 2014, p. 4). Non-recognition, especially by state and international financial institutions, also affects directly and indirectly the policy and development strategies that could reverse this depletion.
