Gender Mainstreaming How do current trends indevelopment 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.

The views expressed in this paper are not necessarily those of FORUM or its members or of the organisations for whom the author works. The responsibility for these views rests with the author alone.
