About This Blog

This blog was created to document UNHCR’s 2009 evaluation of the organization’s Age, Gender and Diversity Mainstreaming strategy and to encourage thinking, dialogue and action around the challenges and rewards of AGDM within UNHCR and beyond. You’ll find the mission, methodology and the milestones of our evaluation as well as posts about films, audio, books, paintings, programs, partners, news, op-eds… anything that helps add to our greater understanding of AGDM.  We encourage feedback and contributions from our partners and friends and look forward to the conversation. Views expressed here are not the official stance of UNHCR.

  2. The exchange of best practices within these networks can also increase the number of youth involved. ,

    • Thank you for your comment. I agree – it is important to bring the youth in when trying to change practices. I share this blog often with a university class I teach on violence against women.
