Over 800,000 Afghans are currently recorded as internally displaced. Additionally, there are upwards of 3 million Afghan refugees in neighbouring Pakistan and Iran. Amongst these it is primarily women and children who suffer more acutely and face multiple layers of discrimination. Displaced Afghan women are more likely to be unemployed and suffer a lack of access to food, water and shelter, as well as be a greater risk of domestic violence. NRC in Afghanistan is working directly with displaced Afghan women and girls in Afghanistan and across the region to reduce the hardship they face.  This seminar will draw on the findings from two recently published reports and also a short documentary film. NRC will lead the discussion on the challenges relating to women’s housing, land and property rights in Afghanistan, as well as the specific needs of the growing numbers of women and girls displaced to urban areas.

As a part of the seminar a short movie will be screened illustrating some of the key challenges faced by women in Afghanistan in exercising housing, land and property rights, as well as showing how NRC is working in Faryab to address these.
