In support of the Civil Society Declaration on Sexual Violence

After several years of work on Conflict-Related Sexual Violence (CRSV), this declaration is a demonstration that through rigorous advocacy, we can collectively realise progressive transformation towards better support for survivors/victims and gender inclusivity. However, herculean hurdles lie ahead of the journeys toward realising contexts where all survivors can access and uptake services without discrimination, and where survivors/victims are not only beneficiaries of services but also active partners in response to and prevention of sexual violence.

Amateur or Organic? Re-imagining photography in forced migration work

I have had an interesting photography journey thus far! With numerous interactions with ‘professional’ photographers, I have learnt to view the world in an entirely different way. That said, I have contributed to Refugee Law Project’s photo gallery with my ‘raw’ photos which 'professional' photographers refer to as amateur, but I brand them as ‘organic photos’ since they contain no artificial additives. For those who missed out on my photos shared via social media and/or struggle with the constant bustle and alerts of the 'new media', worry no more – the Photo Gallery on RLP’s website is up and running with carefully selected and stunning photos.

RLP’s World Refugee Day 2019 Press Statement translated in eight languages

In the interest of reaching a large refugee population with diverse languages, these translations are a fulfilment of our mandate; "To be a resource for forced migrants and relevant actors". The 8 languages into which the statement has been translated only encompass a portion of the broad language needs of forced migrants in Uganda, and ignites discussion on the urgent need for refugee-serving agencies to rethink their approaches of sharing written information to their clients.

South-South Institute #SSI2019

The Fourth South-South Institute on Sexual Violence Against Men and Boys in Conflict and Forced Displacement is back to Kampala!

South-South Institute 2019

The South-South Institute emerged in 2013 from an inter-institutional collaboration between Refugee Law Project (Uganda), Male Survivor of Sexual Abuse Trust (New Zealand) and First Step (Cambodia) following diverse histories and building on a wealth of experience of direct work on sexual violence in conflict, post-conflict and post-colonial settings.

The first Institute was held in Kampala in 2013, the second in Pnomh Penh in 2015, and the third in New Zealand in 2017. Guided by the theme “Bridging the Sexual Violence – Torture Divide”, the fourth Institute is back to its starting place to review the progress made in the past six years in raising international awareness and advocacy on conflict-related sexual violence against men and boys, and to take stock of the relationship between torture and sexual violence. Ms. Yasmin Sooka, Chair of the Commission of Human Rights in South Sudan, is our Keynote Speaker on Day One.

Thank you for participating and for following the LIVE proceedings via Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube. Contact gender@refugeelawproject.org for more information.

South – South Institute on Sexual Violence against Men & Boys in Conflict & Displacement

SSI 2014 - 2019

The South-South Institute emerged in 2013 from an inter-institutional collaboration between Refugee Law Project (Uganda), Male Survivor of Sexual Abuse Trust (New Zealand) and First Step (Cambodia) following diverse histories and building on a wealth of experience of direct work on sexual violence in conflict, post-conflict and post-colonial settings.

RLP and the Gender & Sexuality Programme work inclusively to support women and girls as well as men and boys who are victims/survivors of sexual violence. Currently, and developed over time, our work in the Gender & Sexuality Programme is guided by a unique model dubbed "Screen - Refer - Support - Document". In the course of 2018 over 4,500 refugees and hosts were screened for such experiences, with approximately 1,300 subsequently supported to access successful medical and psychosocial support.

This Resource Pack brings together a collection of work on men and boys survivors of sexual violence, both from our own publications, but also from those of other participants in the South-South Institute.
