Drawing on insights and experiences from NRC’s legal assistance programmes in Afghanistan, Ecuador, Lebanon, Liberia, Palestine (Gaza), and South Sudan, this report presents common themes, challenges, and positive results for displaced women. Key recommendations to be taken at the international level are outlined at the end, for NGOs, UN agencies, and donors.
