GCRF Gender, Justice and Security Hub

Lead Research Organisation: London School of Economics & Pol Sci
Department Name: Centre for Women, Peace and Security

Abstract

The GCRF Gender, Justice and Security Hub will deliver innovative interdisciplinary research on the challenge of achieving gender justice and inclusive security in conflict-affected societies. The Hub addresses the overlapping of three major policy areas: Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 5 on gender equality; SDG 16 on peace, inclusivity and justice; and the implementation of the Women, Peace and Security (WPS) agenda. The UK is a global leader on these issues, particularly gender equality, which is at the heart of UK Aid Strategy as well as a national security priority. Yet in each of these areas, progress has been frustratingly slow, and in some cases has stalled altogether. The Hub will develop an evidence base on the intersections of gender, justice and security; expand research capacity in collaboration with international partners; and make use of unrivalled links with leading ambassadors for gender justice (Hub Champions) to translate research into impact for the achievement of sustainable peace.

Promoting the conditions for gender justice and inclusive security requires a broad vision, ability to unite disparate specialisms, develop capacity across the sites where the development challenge is most intense, and provide independent scrutiny of policy initiatives. A diverse team of PI and co-investigators, widely regarded as experts in gender studies, development, justice and/or WPS, will lead the research. The Hub will pursue its key questions through four projects - on Transformation & Empowerment; Land, Livelihoods & Rights; Migration & Displacement; and Masculinities & Sexualities, as well as two cross-cutting work streams on Law & Policy Frameworks and Methodological Innovation. The challenge the Hub confronts is global, but appears in different ways across contexts. To generate detailed knowledge from which to draw scalable conclusions and recommendations, the Hub will focus on eight core cases: Afghanistan, Colombia, Iraq, Lebanon, Myanmar, Sierra Leone, Sri Lanka and Uganda. While each is distinctive in its experiences and timelines of conflict, the cases are broadly geographically representative and are all significantly conflict-affected.

The Hub structure is designed to build deep and lasting links between researchers, project partners, policy makers, civil society actors and vulnerable groups. In addition to a range of academic outputs (monographs; journal articles; visual materials; working papers; policy reports) specific to each project, the Hub will yield several other outputs of significance for the wider research community: new datasets on transitional justice, women's empowerment and subsequent backlash, and post-conflict reconciliation; a major 'Global Gender, Justice and Security' report, with researchers from across the Hub contributing data and chapters; and an innovative web portal providing wide access to Hub research. The portal will be the Hub's main site of public engagement, featuring videos, podcasts and case studies of the development challenge and effective responses to it, as well as serving as a resource beyond the end of the award.

While the Hub will be housed administratively at the LSE Centre for WPS, its activities will be most evident in the eight core countries. Hub workshops will be held in each one throughout the grant, to include knowledge exchange, research presentation and development, leadership team meetings to identify project synergies and forward plan, visits from Hub Champions, policy meetings, networking and collaboration opportunities and expert-led training. Hub institutions have committed to providing access to research methods courses for researchers from the core countries.

The Hub's activities will be geared towards achieving five forms of impact (including policy and institutional reform and capacity building), in partnership with global south researchers and civil society, to the benefit of those currently facing gender insecurity and injustice.

Planned Impact

The ultimate aim of the Hub is to transform situations of gender insecurity and injustice for the groups they render vulnerable. The Hub will deliver five forms of impact to achieve this aim:

Impact 1 is the creation of new knowledge and advocacy networks that amplify the voices of women and marginalised groups to catalyse change. This type of impact aims to bolster affected communities' abilities to challenge and debate policy, and to bring new voices into public debate, thus supporting the WPS pillar on equal participation and SDG targets 5:5 to ensure women's full and effective participation and equal opportunities for leadership and 16:7 to ensure responsive, inclusive, participatory and representative decision-making at all levels. It also maps on to the UNSG's Prevention Agenda priority to support national capacities for facilitation and dialogue. The achievement of Impact 1 will extend the legacy of the Hub well beyond five years. Civil society project partners in DAC-list countries will be major beneficiaries of both research collaboration and policy engagement. The research proposal has been co-developed with 17 civil society groups with expertise on local development needs. Further beneficiaries include identified local women's and civil society groups in core states; youth activists; student societies; LGBTQ groups and refugee communities in Lebanon, Turkey and Jordan, and from Myanmar.

Impact 2 will be local and global policy change on SDGs 5, 16 & the WPS agenda instigated by evidence on policy impacts generated by the Hub. This impact supports the WPS pillar on promotion of women's rights post conflict and SDG targets 5:1 to end all forms of discrimination against all women and girls everywhere; 5A to undertake reforms to give women equal rights to economic resources, as well as access to ownership and control over land and other forms of property; 5C to adopt and strengthen sound policies and enforceable legislation for the promotion of gender equality and the empowerment of all women and girls; 16:3 to promote the rule of law at the national and international levels and ensure equal access to justice for all; and 16B to promote and enforce non-discriminatory laws and policies for sustainable development. Hub research will inform policy advocacy and policy design and provide independent policy scrutiny. Opportunities have been identified for impact on major policy processes through government agencies, international organisations and transnational civil society groups, including core country governments, UN Women; DFID; Global Fund for Women, UN Special Procedures mandates & OHCHR; UNDP; IOM; MenEngage alliance; UNDPKO; & the CEDAW Committee, to offer increased protection to groups who are currently under-served.

Impact 3 is institutional reform in core countries and more broadly, to underwrite inclusive security and just peace, for the benefit of conflict-affected societies. It aligns with SDG targets 16:6 to develop effective, accountable and transparent institutions at all levels and 16.7 (above), and with the UNSG's Prevention Agenda priority to advance a preventive approach to human rights. Hub projects anticipate impact on the knowledge, capacity and practice of institutions in each research site, including transitional justice institutions wherever they are present, along with national agencies on land restitution and territorial renewal (Colombia); the Ministry of Higher Education (Iraq); the Consultation Task Force and Parliamentary Gender Caucus (Sri Lanka); & district government & the Ker Kwaro Acholi group of chiefs (Uganda). The Hub will also benefit the International Criminal Court through the provision of research to facilitate its in-country operations.

Impacts 4 (capacity-building to benefit hub participants) and 5 (creation of new knowledge; development of research methods & sector good practice to benefit the wider academic community) are detailed elsewhere in the application.

Description Six artists explore ideas of recurrence and resilience in contemporary Sri Lanka. Lionel Wendt Gallery, Colombo, Sri Lanka. Two women and four men, from different generations, of different ethnicities, from different geographies, and representing a broad canvas of socio-political backgrounds, reflect on the paradox of a country that has changed rapidly in some ways, yet remains unchanged in others. Their work is rooted in their childhood memories and politics of their circumstances. They resonate deeply with collective sentiments shared by many who live on the island. Through a variety of mediums, these artists reflect, contest and explore achievement, loss, missed opportunities, grief and human resilience, and events that have had an uncanny capacity to recur. 
Type Of Art Artistic/Creative Exhibition 
Year Produced 2020 
Impact This exhibition was curated by Hub partner the International Centre for Ethnic Studies as part of the Gender, Justice and Security Hub Convention, Lionel Wendt Gallery, Colombo, Sri Lanka. The exhibition was an important artistic element of the Convention.

Description The Hub's core research activities were decimated by the budget cut, and the Hub's firmly held conviction that funding must be channelled towards the salaries of those made most vulnerable by the cuts. This decision, which has meant that the Hub was able to maintain its workforce in 2021-22, had significant consequences for planned research activity. With funding restored (albeit with an additional review stage in July 2022), the Hub's decision to prioritise its people over its productivity has been vindicated, as the Hub's members are now well placed to recommence activity for the next reporting period.
Despite operating with a negligible research budget and in the face of devastating conflict in Afghanistan, the Hub's community was able to show remarkable resilience and achieve outputs under a revised workplan. Highlights of the Hub's achievements in 2021 include:
• 33 new publications, the majority of which are featured on the Hub's website;
• A Hub-wide Convention in July 2021 with 598 attendances at sessions ;
• Five public online events with a total of 395 attendances;
• Introduction of a dedicated fund to support projects to realise policy and development impact;
• New avenues of enquiry introduced as a result of the pandemic, including frameworks for conducting research during a pandemic and new analyses of the social, cultural, political and economic implications of the pandemic on gender, justice and security in Uganda and Colombia, available on the Hub's website;
• Hub members continue to influence policy development in Colombia, Northern Ireland, Sierra Leone and the UK through participation in legislative reform processes, working groups for the codification of human rights, advancement of the SDGs and the UK's revision of its National Action Plan on Women, Peace and Security.
With the restoration of funding in 2022, the Hub is well positioned to build on this foundation and deliver further outcomes against its five key impact areas.
The Hub will be well placed to articulate this progress in the Annual Report to UKRI due in October 2021.
Exploitation Route The Hub's Pathways to Impact identified five key pathways:
i) the creation of new knowledge and advocacy networks that amplify the voices of women and marginalised groups to catalyse change into the future;
ii) local and global policy change on SDGs 5, 16 & the WPS agenda, instigated by evidence on policy impacts generated by Hub research and taken forwards through relationships with policy makers;
iii) institutional reform in core countries and more broadly, to underwrite inclusive security and just peace, instigated through relationships with key institutional actors;
iv) capacity-building across Hub participants and beyond the Hub, including training and mentoring Hub participants to enable them to pay forwards and train and mentor other partners in the future;
v) creation of new knowledge, development of research methods & sector good practice which will benefit and be taken forward by the wider academic community.
The Hub is on track to deliver research and activities that will support these pathways but is facing considerable challenges due to the debilitating budget cuts and still current effects of COVID-19. While members have excellent relationships with academic and civil society communities in focus countries and at an international level, the pandemic closed many of the spaces in which these communities and organisations can have influence on policy and institutions. Work continues through the Hub's Impact Manager and Impact Working Group to develop pathways while facing high and unanticipated barriers to entry and includes an enhanced focus on public engagement to supplement policy engagement.

Impact The Hub's advocacy directly led to the inclusion of at-risk Afghan researchers in the list of individuals called forward for evacuation in August 2021 - although none of those listed were evacuated by the UK Government. The public advocacy by Professor Blitz and Dr Raina particularly, with appearances on television, radio and in print, has directly influenced public attitudes towards Afghan resettlement. This can be measured in part by letters sent to Members of Parliament using the Hub's template; responses to social media posts, including twitter accounts; donations to the Hub-established Afghan Solidarity Coalition's fundraising efforts for Afghan citizens.

Title Return, Reintegration and Political Restructuring research method 
Description Issues such as conflict, displacement, identity, belonging and community can often be difficult to verbalize or articulate. Drs Keles and Irwani have concluded that visual research methodology can be very useful to study notions of displacement, migration, return mobilities, identity, community and belonging among returned Internally Displaced Persons, refugees and migrants. The researchers are employing photo-elicitation research methodology to study a wide variety of topics such as identity, culture, community, power, class, gender and spatial relationships. Incorporating the visual research methodology within a traditional interview or focus group as well as survey approach will be an exciting research approach for those seeking to move beyond data as verbal text.

Results and Impact In February, 36 top UPDF officers attended the two day meeting. Of whom only three were female .
In March 2020, a capacity building session was organised for the top UPDF (Uganda People's Defence Force) officers, Of the 38 participants only two were women. This disparity aligns very much with military institutions globally. In March still we organised two capacity building sessions for people associated with the UPDF. In the two sessions, only women attended, Each session hosted 50 women.

Due to current restrictions for big group gatherings, we organised more than 30 meetings with soldiers, widows of fallen soldiers, adult children, and soldiers' spouses. On average each meeting was attended by 40 participants.

The main strength of this project is in promoting dialogue in communities about emerging findings. Through capacity building meetings and consultative meetings, different interlocuters select, discuss and adapt practical solutions to their protracted challenges. For instance, the UPDF officers discussed at length the possibility of minimizing institutional corruption through making it mandatory for soldiers to write wills.

Consistent with the efforts to help rekindle the land question as it relates to gender justice in Sierra Leone, this panel discussed how the pandemic may have reinforced the need for an equitable access to and ownership of land while diverting attention to a more neoliberal economic recovery approach that relegates gender, livelihood, and justice concerns as secondary.

Results and Impact Among many new challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic is the need to protect gender relations, livelihoods and the economy from the negative effects of lockdown. The lockdown in Uganda was a key part of the national response to the outbreak, and was highly effective at limiting the impact on people's health and lives. And yet, when people were asked to stay at home, and when transport networks were suspended along with schools, offices, shops and many other businesses, citizens' livelihoods suffered from unprecedented strain, this affected the gender relations in households. Without work, income dropped, without income, accessing essential products such as food became difficult and many families separated. It is important, therefore, that the effects of lockdown on citizens' livelihoods and gender relations amidst scarcity of resources are monitored as closely as the spread of the virus. This event will explore how gender inequality manifests in Uganda, some of the factors that undermine gender equality as provided for under SDG5 and triggers of gender-based violence (GBV) especially before and during COVID19. It will also discuss government responses towards the promotion of gender equality and fight against GBV and the challenges to the attainment of gender equality in Uganda.

Primary Audience Study participants or study members
Results and Impact The outbreak of a global pandemic has simultaneously revealed the fragility and robustness of health, education, economic, security, political and social systems. There is no shortage of exceptional responses to the pandemic. These have included the physical lockdown of millions of people, mandates to return millions from cities to rural communities, restrictions on expression that challenges government management of the crisis, data tracking on the movement of persons, extensive border controls, and a broad range of political and legal controls that are far-reaching across all levels of public and private life. Responses have also included remarkable initiatives at community level, often led by women, to provide care where state services fail and to maintain momentum for progressive policy agendas.

This event will take stock of changing social and political landscapes, locally and internationally, one year into the COVID-19 pandemic. Three Co-Directors of the UKRI GCRF Gender, Justice and Security Hub will discuss questions such as: How have responses to COVID-19 affected the fight for gender justice and inclusive security? What are the impacts of the crisis on political and social rights agendas? Has the pandemic exacerbated the closing down of civil society space? How are gender roles and conceptions of masculinity challenged as a result of the reconfiguration of public and private spaces? And, perhaps most importantly, as we head towards a post-COVID reckoning: does the moment of crisis brought about by the pandemic offer opportunities for positive change?

Results and Impact Arts-based research has gained an increasing popularity as researchers are finding new ways to conduct and communicate research. This event will present and discuss different ways of engaging with the arts from ongoing research across the Hub: art as research, art in research and art for dissemination of research.

The event will also introduce the virtual curation 'Practices of Making from Sri Lanka, Pakistan, India and Afghanistan', which is linked to the Culture and Conflict project in the Transformation & Empowerment stream. The project has developed and adapted its methodology in light of the pandemic, which creates innovative spaces and approaches to designing research, gathering and analysing data, presenting and using data, in ways which are inclusive and accessible. It includes short film format testimonies from participants in research sites across South Asia (Afghanistan, Pakistan, India and Sri Lanka - in English, Hindi, Kashmiri, Urdu, Pashto, Dari, Tamil and Sinhalese), speaking about this research and how it informs their lives. It also features a curated collection of images of culture and craft from across the region the project is working in. This platform allows participants to not only get a close view of the work, but also allow them to visualise data and data sharing across language and geographical barriers.

Results and Impact This event explored how individual and institutional responses to the pandemic have at times been shaped by stereotypically 'masculine' ideas of what catastrophes look like and how they need to be managed. Speakers considered if and how these responses have fallen short of recognising the reality of pandemics and understanding what is needed for communities to cope. The speakers discussed how stereotypically 'male' and 'female' coded responses can be rethought, how popular culture influences these reactions and how they play out in everyday life. They considered how to disrupt these masculinised narratives, overcome militarised and 'war-like' responses and build both everyday and institutional ways of responding to the pandemic with solidarity and care. Speakers were Ms Bahar Munzir of the People's Development Organization (Iraq) and Dr Henri Myrttinen (Finland).

Results and Impact On 13 April 2020, social media in Uganda was treated to a vicious and disturbing video in which a young energetic man was recorded mercilessly flogging his 82-year-old grandmother over the latter's alleged refusal to acknowledge the grandson's belonging to her family and his subsequent claims over land. We argue that while the widespread media condemnation of the young man (grandson) led to his immediate arrest and further prosecution, a larger point was unfortunately missed. The arrest and imprisonment of this supposedly errant young man is a mere scratch on the surface of a deeply fractured social system. Drawing from an on-going qualitative and ethnographic study entitled "Beyond war compensation: Gender Justice, Livelihood and Land Rights in Northern Uganda", we reflect on some of the contemporary post-conflict conflicts - around land, livelihoods and social belonging - that resonate with this incident. We critically reflect on imperatives for post-war investment in gender equitable sustainable peace in the region.

Will we finally see significant reductions in violence on the streets, on buses and in workplaces? How do these victories relate to better living conditions for all women, including rural, Afro, indigenous and older women? What does it mean to take a critical stance on these mobilisations and what kinds of proposals have come from the critique?
