Need to Know Guidance on Working with Men and Boy Survivors of Sexual and Gender-Based Violence in Forced Displacement

Need to Know Guidance on Working with Men and Boy Survivors of Sexual and Gender-Based Violence in Forced DisplacementRefugee men and boys can be subjected to sexual and gender‑based violence (SGBV). Survivors have specific health, psychosocial, legal, and safety needs, but often find it hard to discuss their experience and access the support they need. It is important that UNHCR and its partners take steps to address these difficulties. The objectives of this note are to emphasise that programmes on sexual and gender‑based violence need to include men and boys, and to provide guidance on how to access survivors, facilitate reporting, provide protection and deliver essential medical, legal and social services.

Gender Realities: Assessing Attitudes, Definitions, Values and Perceptions of Gender Based Violence in Kotido District

Karamoja remains one of the mysteries of Uganda, a zone which few fellow citizens reach, and where few travelers venture. It is an area, an economy and a culture which for many outsiders is captured in a few simplistic terms; “cattle raiders”, “warriors”, and “courtship rape”. All three suggest violence, disregard for fellow human beings, and in particular for women. In exploring these questions for the purposes of designing more context relevant and appropriate responses to SGBV, this report sheds considerable light on gender dynamics among the Jie in Kotido district, and thus offers an important contribution to our understanding of these issues not just in that particular community, but also in agro-pastoralist communities in the wider region.
