In November 2017, Aime Moninga, President of Men of Hope, a unique self-help support group of male refugee survivors of conflict-related sexual violence, was blocked from participating in the third South-South Institute on Sexual Violence against Men and Boys which was held in Christchurch, Aotearoa (New Zealand). The block was created by the New Zealand immigration authorities who refused to issue him a visa to travel, despite the fact that he held a valid Convention Travel Document. Though he was unable to travel in person, and the participants in Aotearoa were thus denied his unique insights into the realities of conflict-related sexual violence against men, Aime kindly prepared a video message to the participants.

Refugee Law Project is proud of the contribution that the South-South Institute on Sexual Violence against Men and Boys has made to building momentum around both the evidence base as well as appropriate response and prevention initiatives. We look forward to hosting the fourth South-South Institute in Uganda in 2019.
