Forum Discussion Paper 2008

How do current trends in development and volunteering intersect with gender?

This is the forth in a series of discussion papers produced by FORUM, which follows on from our research work on trends in International volunteering and co-operation in recent years. One of the key trends identified in this time has been how gender mainstreaming affects us as International Volunteer and Co-operation Organizations (IVCOs).

This paper aims to consider some of the implications of gender mainstreaming, what we can learn from this and identify some challenges for the future.
