Armed Conflict Deaths Disaggregated by Gender
This paper attempts to assess the impact of armed conflict on populations through a gender-focused approach. The authors use gender-specific casualty data to provide an empirical framework for such a study. They conclude that although men are more likely to die during conflicts, women die more often of indirect causes after the conflict is over.
