Beirut II: Bringing Host-Community and Refugee Transwomen Together


Interventions for Strengthening GBV Prevention and Response for Urban Refugees

Transwomen refugees face extreme violence and discrimination in the cities where they seek refuge. In 2016, WRC partnered with MOSAIC, a Lebanese human rights organization, to support Syrian transwomen refugees living in Beirut. This case study describes how tailored activities brought refugee and Lebanese transwomen together to: provide psyschosocial support; build skills and capacities for activism and risk reduction; and strengthen peer networks.
