    Gender-Based Violence

    We advocate for measures to protect at-risk populations and to ensure survivors’ access to medical care including: emergency contraception, postexposure prophylaxis to prevent HIV infection and psychosocial counseling. This minimum level of care should be available from the earliest stages of a humanitarian crisis.

    Capacity Building Workshops: Urban GBV Prevention and Response

    Learnings from a series of in-country workshops conducted in 2017

    In 2017, the Women’s Refugee Commission co-coordinated and facilitated four workshops that brought together local humanitarian and non-humanitarian actors — who have a role in mitigating GBV for urban refugees — to share new tools, strategies, case studies, and positive practices for urban GBV prevention.

    Beirut I: Strengthening Peer Networks for Refugees with Disabilities

    Interventions for Strengthening GBV Prevention and Response for Urban Refugees

    Previous research has demonstrated that refugees with intellectual disabilities living in urban areas face added risks of violence, including GBV, due to the breakdown in protective peer networks, and exclusion activities which might confer access to age- and gender-appropriate information and education. Throughout 2015 and 2016, the WRC partnered with a local organization called the Lebanese Association for Self-Advocacy (LASA) to strengthen protective peer networks for refugees with disabilities living in Beirut. Sessions supported refugees with disabilities living in Beirut to reflect on safety issues, including how these might be different for women, men, girls and boys with disabilities, as well as how these might relate to nationality/country of origin. These sessions also helped to strengthen their protective peer networks in the community.

    Kampala: Supporting Refugee Women Engaged in Sex Work through the Peer Education Model & Bringing Mobile Health Clinics to Refugee Neighborhoods

    Interventions for Strengthening GBV Prevention and Response for Urban Refugees

    In Kampala, the WRC partnered with Reproductive Health Uganda (RHU), an organization that provides integrated SRH and GBV services to Ugandans, including Ugandan sex workers. The goal was to expand their services to be inclusive of refugee women. This case study outlines two different interventions that were conducted: (1) a free mobile health clinic that went to refugee neighborhoods and provided a range of GBV and medical services, and (2) a peer education program conducted with refugee women engaged in sex work in Uganda—both in Kampala and in the Nakivale Refugee Settlement—that was designed to address information, service, and support gaps affecting these women’s health and safety.

    Santo Domingo: Creating Safe Spaces for Adolescent Refugee Girls

    Interventions for Strengthening GBV Prevention and Response for Urban Refugees

    Refugee women and girls are at an especially high risk of GBV because they exist at the intersections of being women and refugees, leading to increased social isolation and discrimination. In 2016, WRC partnered with Asylum Access Ecuador to develop a program to mitigate GBV risks and improve response to GBV cases among refugee adolescent girls. This case study describes the activities conducted to accomplish this, including: (1) strengthening the GBV referral pathway; (2) conducting an adolescent program to build protective peer networks, build girls’ capacities by improving self-worth; and (3) enabling the integration of refugees and Ecuadorians.

    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.

    Delhi: Developing Refugee-Led GBV Task Forces

    Interventions for Strengthening GBV Prevention and Response for Urban Refugees

    In Delhi, 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.

    A Guide to Sexual and Gender-Based Violence Legal Protection in Acute Emergencies

    In times of war and its aftermath, legal structures that traditionally protect women and children, including formal and informal justice systems and respect for the rule of law, break down leaving them vulnerable to abuse including but not limited to rape, early and forced marriage and domestic violence. The guide summarizes an assessment of War Child Canada’s three-pronged legal protection model was implemented with South Sudanese refugees in Northern Uganda and uses it to identify the most important lessons for ensuring legal protection mechanisms are in place at the onset of an emergency.

    Urban Gender-Based Violence Risk Assessment Guidance

    Identifying Risk Factors for Urban Refugees

    In cities, refugees face especially high levels of violence because displacement, language, skin color, and other intersecting factors. Certain subgroups are at increased risk because of their work, age, disability or gender or sexual identity. Urban refugees are targeted because perpetrators assume, often correctly, that refugees are unable or unwilling to seek police protection. 

    This tool contains essential urban risk questions that are intended to supplement whatever GBV risk assessment tools are currently being used by humanitarian practitioners in urban areas.

    This is part of the tool set for addressing GBV risk among urban refugees.
