    Gender-Based Violence Prevention & Response: Opportunities & Challenges for Serving Urban Refugees in Ecuador

    This field assessment identifies the particular GBV risks faced by urban refugees in Ecuador. It identifies strategic entry points for: bridging service gaps, supporting refugees’ risk mitigation strategies, and strengthening the protection environment.

    More than 120,000 refugees currently reside inEcuador, constituting the largest refugee population found in any Latin Americancountry. Nearly two-thirds of refugees and asylum-seekers have sought safety and security in cities. 

    Key Findings

    • Women, girls, men, boys, persons with disabilities, and LGBT refugees all preceived threats of GBV in different ways.
    • Both refugee service providers and local community-based organizations expressed a desire to work together more closely. This is particularly true between refugee organizations and LGBT organizations. 
    • Refugees living in Quito reported feeling unsafe throughout the city, with youth feeling particularly vulnerable at school.
    • Refugees interviewed further reported finding it next to impossible to find a job, let alone one where their rights are respected and they are treated with dignity.
    • Layers of discrimination function as a catalysts for GBV: discrimination toward refugees in general is compounded by stereotypes of Colombian women and discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity and/or intellectual or physical disability.


    • Build linkages between local LGBT organizations, refugee service providers, and LGBT refugees. 
    • Develop a tool to support both refugees and refugee service providers in learning about the range of services, groups, and activities open to refugees in Ecuador.
    • Strengthen partners' capacity around disability inclusion, LGBT inclusion, and non-discrimination.
    • Partner with education officials, school administrators, teachers, and parents to address violence against refugee students in schools.
