Gendering Ethnicity: Implications for Democracy Assistance (Issues in Globalization)
by Lori Handrahan
Democracy, anticipated by American and other Western powers to prevent economic chaos and political conflict within and among states, is not evolving as expected. This research argues that part of the failure resides in United States democracy assistance's inadequate consideration of gender within democracy programming.

Review of OCHA’s Gender Equality Policy
2 December 2010
Prepared by the Evaluation and Guidance Section, UN OCHA Based on information and recommendations provided by Lori Handrahan, Independent Consultant
The creation of OCHA’s Gender Equality Policy in 2005 and of a dedicated Senior Gender Specialist position in 2006 have been important steps towards gender mainstreaming in OCHA. Moreover, the role of interagency tools such as the IASC Gender E- Learning, Gender Markers, the GenCap programme and leadership in advocacy is proving invaluable to reach established gender objectives. GenCaps have been an important asset to support and provide technical guidance, and when placed with OCHA they have strengthened OCHA’s ability to provide effective coordination on gender.
Assessment of The Gender Based Violence Information Management (GBVIMS) Pilot in Northern Uganda
Lori Handrahan, Ph.D. & Rose Mary Nalwadda, MA
Challenges of gathering accurate and reliable data on gender-based violence (GBV) during humanitarian responses are significant. Humanitarian decision-makers, GBV programmers/service providers, and donors all require valid and robust GBV data to provide, and accurately target, critically needed GBV services. Yet, sharable GBV data in humanitarian contexts has been largely absent because the means to collect such data has been non-existent. Insufficient funds, against an extreme need, are available for crucial GBV services, let alone finances to create safe and ethical data collection and management systems.
