Gendered experiences of return and displacement in South Sudan: developing gender-sensitive policies and programming

People in South Sudan have experienced decades of forced displacement and cross-border mobility, resulting in families being split across the country as well as across neighbouring Sudan, Kenya, Ethiopia and Uganda. As of 2021, more than four million South Sudanese citizens have been displaced. Over the past four years, over 500,000 refugees and over 1.1 million internally displaced persons (IDPs) have returned to their place of habitual residence.
