This book aims to introduce a much-needed gender lens to debates around social protection.

Millions of pounds in international development funding are being invested annually in social protection policies and programmes to address high levels of poverty and vulnerability in the developing world. Poverty is perpetuated by risks and vulnerabilities, many of which are gendered. Time poverty, gender-based violence, discriminatory labour markets and unequal intra-household decision-making power all serve to exacerbate gender inequalities and vulnerability. Despite this, little attention has been paid to social protection's role in tackling gendered experiences of poverty and vulnerability.

The book argues that gender-sensitive policy and programme design and implementation are essential to maximise the effectiveness of social protection and that understanding the ways in which gender dynamics across the lifecycle shape policy and programme impacts - both intended and unintended - is a complex endeavour. Drawing on empirical evidence from poor households and communities in Africa, Asia and Latin America, the book provides rich insights into the effects of a broad range of social protection instruments. It concludes that with relatively simple design changes and investment in implementation capacity there is potential for social protection to contribute to transforming gender relations at the individual, intra-household and community levels.
