    Women's Refugee Commission Responds to UNSC Meeting about Rohingya Repatriation

    The United Nations Security Council (UNSC) is meeting today to discuss plans to repatriate Rohingya refugees, following an announcement made by the governments of Bangladesh and Myanmar last week. In August 2017, Myanmar security forces launched widespread and systematic attacks on civilians in Kachin, Rakhine, and Shan States, resulting in the largest and fastest-ever influx of Rohingya refugees in Bangladesh.

    Male rape survivors go uncounted in Rohingya camps

    Researchers who study sexual violence in crises say the needs of male survivors have largely been overlooked and neglected by humanitarian programmes in Bangladesh’s refugee camps.

    “There’s a striking division between aid workers and the refugees,” said Sarah Chynoweth, a researcher who has studied male survivors of sexual violence in emergencies around the world, including the Rohingya camps. “Many aid workers say we haven’t heard about it, but the refugees are well aware of it.”

    A report she authored for the Women’s Refugee Commission, a research organisation that advocates for improvements on gender issues in humanitarian responses, calls for aid groups in Bangladesh to boost services for all survivors of sexual violence – recognising that men and boys need help, in addition to women and girls.

     

    No Gender Equality Globally Without Women's Empowerment in Humanitarian Settings

    This blog was cross-posted from Thomson Reuters Foundation.

    Four years ago, world leaders made a pledge to achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls by the year 2030. Goal 5 of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development (the Sustainable Development Goals [SDGs]) contains targets to eliminate all forms of violence against women and girls, end female genital mutilation and child marriage, ensure universal access to sexual and reproductive health care, and uphold women’s reproductive rights.

    Tomorrow, during the high-level segment of the United Nations General Assembly in New York, leaders will meet to assess progress on the SDGs. This moment provides an opportunity to see how far we’ve come since 2015 on the commitment to achieve gender equality. The Women’s Refugee Commission (WRC) is particularly interested in these discussions, and how they relate to the more than 35 million women and girls forced from their homes by conflict and crises.

    NEW YORK, NY – As world leaders gather for the 74th U.N. General Assembly – including a special summit on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) – the Women’s Refugee Commission (WRC) today released new findings showing marked advances in promoting gender equality in the Cox’s Bazar refugee camps. SDG 5 promises to “achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls.” The findings were compiled in the report Gender Equality and Women’s Empowerment in the Rohingya Humanitarian Response in Cox’s Bazar.
