This paper, the fifth of six preliminary working papers of Volunteering in Conflict and Emergencies (ViCE) initiative, explores the impact of gender on volunteering in conflicts and emergencies. The paper argues that gender, along with other factors of identity such as, class, race and ethnicity affect the meanings, experiences and outcomes of local volunteering in different cultural contexts; volunteering in conflicts and emergencies can reinforce gender and other roles but can also enable the challenging of gender norms; there is a need for further research on the impacts of volunteering on gender and other social relations over time, and during protracted crises.
