‘Work Went Home:’ A satirical projection of teleworking.

This piece explores the dynamics of working from home. It argues that 'Work' went 'Home' at a time when Home wasn’t prepared to receive Work, yet. As such, whereas Work and Home are currently quarantined together, the two are having trouble forging a progressive relationship and peaceful co-existence. The duo sees each other with resentment, anger, and frustration; Home wondering when the uninvited guest will bid farewell. Also, ‘Work’ wonders why our grandfather continues to play games of ‘lock-unlock-lock…’ making the stubborn visitor, who could easily drive back, to wait for Government masks.

The Loud Silence: The plight of refugee male survivors of conflict-related sexual violence

A thought-provoking blog piece written by Wokorach Mogi, our SGBVP Officer – Kampala Office. In his piece, titled “The Loud Silence: The plight of refugee male survivors of conflict-related sexual violence” Mogi brings out his extensive experience in the complex field of working with refugee male survivors of Conflict-related Sexual Violence (CRSV) in Kampala, Gulu and Nakivale. He explicates key challenges male survivors grapple with, especially focusing on dilemmas in seeking and uptaking services so as to (re)gain their full functionality as well as lead dignified lives.

Workplace Injustices Eating Away Our Workforce

Achieving meaningful social co-existence begins with our readiness to embrace diversity, and in championing creative ways of addressing injustices - including unleashing head-on approaches depending on the situation. Progress in businesses, household harmony and professional growth largely depend on how we treat the less privileged, underpaid, and the less qualified personnel who are often ignored and sometimes treated as if they are lesser human beings.

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 came 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, was our Keynote Speaker.

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.
