Out of the Margins: An intersectional analysis of disability and diverse sexual orientation, gender identity, expression & sex characteristics in humanitarian and development contexts

Organisation: CBM

An emerging area of enquiry in the development and humanitarian sectors is the intersectionality of people with disabilities and diverse sexual orientation, gender identity and/or expression, and sex characteristics (SOGIESC) in development and humanitarian contexts. This paper shares the findings of an analytical process conducted in late 2018 to early 2019, with the aim of exploring and building understanding of this topic and providing recommendations to guide efforts to strengthen inclusive development and humanitarian policy and practice. The process involved a review of the available literature relevant to the intersections of disability and SOGIESC in development and humanitarian contexts and analysis of key informant interviews with individuals and organisations within or relevant to the intersections of interest.
