The project, Inclusive Economies, Enduring Peace: The Transformative Role of Social Reproduction, has researched how conflict has affected women’s unpaid and paid labour. It explored the impact of conflict and recovery on the depletion of women’s lives and of their household and communities. The project investigated how women strategise to reverse this depletion and what role the state and non-state actors involved in post-conflict negotiations and building institutional infrastructure play to address this issue. In so doing, the study addresses the UN Sustainable Development Goals 5 on gender equality, 8 on decent work and 16 on peace, justice and strong institutions. The research evidence produced in this report has the potential to shape new policies and interventions that will contribute to lasting peace and inclusive economic prosperity. It has also tested a new feminist methodology to address data collection in complex contexts.
