Armenia gender alert no. 1: Voices of women activists and civil society organizations: First respondents to the Armenia refugee crisis
The objective of this gender alert is to capture the initial messages conveyed by women’s organizations actively involved in responding to the refugee crisis in Armenia. This information was shared with UN Women during the initial days of the displacement of thousands of ethnic Armenians into Armenia following a nine-month blockade, the recent escalation of the decades-long conflict, and isolation in the region.
This information is not exhaustive. Its primary purpose is to provide an insight into the current situation of refugees and emphasize their specific needs from a gender and diversity perspective. As the situation continues to evolve and more data become available, a more in-depth analysis will be necessary.
