Delhi: Developing Refugee-Led GBV Task Forces


Interventions for Strengthening GBV Prevention and Response for Urban Refugees

In Delhi, India, the Women’s Refugee Commission (WRC) partnered with Don Bosco, a UNHCR implementing partner, to launch a series of pilot activities that would be responsive to the particular GBV risks and service gaps facing refugees living in Delhi. One of the cornerstone activities was the creation of Urban GBV Task Forces. These Task Forces were conceived by Don Bosco as a way of instituting community-led GBV prevention and response efforts. This case study outlines the different activities the Task Forces engaged in, such as: workshops on GBV topics; bringing learning to their communities; building rapport with local police precincts; and providing targeted assistance to at-risk community members.
