Sizing the mobile gender gap in refugee contexts

GSMA has done a lot of research showing the gender gap in mobile phone ownership and mobile internet use. In this case study, they looked specifically at whether there are gaps within refugee contexts, what those gaps are and the implications for humanitarian aid in two refugee settlements.

The GSMA represents the interests of mobile operators worldwide, uniting more than 750 operators with over 350 companies in the broader mobile ecosystem, including handset and device makers, software companies, equipment providers and internet companies, as well as organisations in adjacent industry sectors. The GSMA also produces the industry-leading MWC events held annually in Barcelona, Los Angeles and Shanghai, as well as the Mobile 360 Series of regional conferences.
