Rachel Gordon presents panel at Nordic Africa Days conference

On Friday September 23, Feinstein’s Rachel Gordon presented a panel at the Nordic Africa Days, the Nordic Africa Institute’s biannual conference. The panel—titled: Gender, sexuality, and violence during and after humanitarian crises—was convened by the Secure Livelihoods Research Consortium (SLRC). Questions discussed included: how are the impacts of humanitarian crises gendered? How does gender relate to people’s responses to their circumstances in the midst of crises? How may humanitarian crises shape and reshape gender relations and social norms?

The panel presented five abstracts, including one authored by Rachel Gordon and another authored by Feinstein’s Teddy Atim and Dyan Mazurana. To learn more about the panel, click here.
