Understanding Gendered implications of Serious and Organised Crime in Pakistan

This paper seeks to provide empirical information that would enable CSSF Pakistan to find key entry points to understand the gendered implications of SOC and enhance ongoing discussions around gender-sensitive SOC programming in-country. It is based on a review of publicly available literature on gender and organised crime from within Pakistan and outside, complemented by consultation from Pakistani context experts. The impact of SOC is highly gendered: the networks, and their corrosive impact on security and developmental outcomes, are sustained by patriarchal and regressive gender norms prevalent in the country.
