Now and the Future Gender Equality, Peace and Security in a COVID-19 World – Iraq
The impact of COVID-19 is deeply gendered. Gender-conflict analysis and women’s and girls’ human rights should therefore be at the centre of short- and long-term global responses and recoveries to COVID-19, future pandemics and crises. As a result, GAPS and 22 partners in 10 countries conducted research into the impact of COVID-19 on peace, security and gender inequality. This report, undertaken by the Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom (WILPF), Iraqi Women Network (IWN) and Empower Women to Lead (ASUDA) outlines the impact of COVID-19 on gender equality, peace and security in Iraq, and makes recommendations for response to this pandemic and to future crises.
