DescriptionRelief organisations need to change the way they work with women refugees (and men and child refugees), to allow them a say in their own development. This is important not just in terms of grassroots involvement and a say in policy-making, but also for refugees' self-respect. Wallace explains why women should be fully represented in the areas of agency staff and procedures, research, listening and decision-making, and access to resources. In addition, local women's organisations are to be encouraged. Wallace uses case studies and shows the necessity of investing time to bring about long-term change. This article is hosted by our co-publisher Taylor & Francis.
