Access and the right to the city are not equal for all citizens, especially women. The relationship between space and gender reflects social inequality in spatial planning. Urban planners often do not consider the difference in people's needs, choices, and identities.
The inclusion of gender in urban planning and design is an ethical tool to seek equal opportunities for all citizens.
Gender-inclusive planning refers to the need for the perspective of both men and women at all stages of strategic urban development.
The European Commission defines gender-inclusive planning as ‘an active approach to planning, which takes gender as a key variable or criterion and, which seeks to incorporate an explicit gender dimension into policy or action’.
Mainstreaming a gender approach includes investigating the structure of gender inequality and recognizing the gender gap in a given context, then defining gender policy objectives and appropriate interventions to achieve them.
The research aims at developing a strategy that contributes to improve the lives of refugees. The strategy will be developed based on studying Amartya Sen’s capability approach and examining how to put into practice
The study focuses on two main pillars; Firstly, exploring the available capabilities and how to turn them into long-term functionings through the setting up of ‘local collective agencies’ that run life in refugee camps. Secondly, designing the enabling environment that can effectively influence the application of the capability approach.
The research will challenge stereotypes that view refugees in perpetual need, and other limiting beliefs that are based on lack rather than abundance; as these beliefs can limit the creation of human agencies.
