ALIGN has developed an annotated bibliography that brings together key resources on social protection and gender norms. The studies outlined discuss how social protection programmes incorporate attention to gender norms, how gender norms affect the operation of social protection programmes and how social protection programmes contribute to gender norm change. We have identified materials with particular insights on the effects on adolescents and young people. These studies point to emerging awareness of the potential of social protection to challenge discriminatory gender norms and the importance of gender-sensitive design to avoid reinforcing such norms.
