Gender (In)equality, Disaster and Human Rights - the CEDAW Committee and General Recommendation No. 37, in Yearbook of International Disaster Law Online

Monika Mayrhofer contributed with an article on Gender (In)equality, Disaster and Human Rights - the CEDAW Committee and General Recommendation No. 37 to the first issue of the Yearbook of International Disaster Law, which was published at the end of 2019.

In 2018, the Committee on the Elimination of Discrimination against Women adopted General recommendation No. 37 on the gender-related dimensions of disaster risk reduction in the context of climate change. The article analysis how the General recommendation No. 37 conceptualises and frames the issues and the interrelations between gender, disasters, and human rights. The Yearbook is available online.
