“NOBODY HELPED ME”: GENDER-BASED VIOLENCE AND FORCED MIGRATION FROM DISPLACEMENT TO REFUGE

In collaboration with the IFRC, the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Museum is proud to host the launch of the International Report by the SEREDA Project, led by the University of Birmingham in conjunction with the University of Melbourne, Bilkent and Uppsala and NGO partners.

 

Over four years, the SEREDA project conducted extensive research to understand the nature and incidence of gender-based violence (GBV) experienced by forced migrants who have fled conflict and are residing in countries of refuge. The project interviewed over 300 respondents about GBV experiences across their forced migrant journeys and examined the ways in which survivors could be better protected and supported in both transit and settlement.

Agenda:

5:15PM                Welcome at the Museum
5:30PM                Introduction by the Red Cross Museum and IFRC
5:50PM                Presentation of Key Findings by the SEREDA Team
6:10PM                Panel Discussion with experts in the field
6:55PM                Q&A with the audience
7:15PM                Cocktail in the Museum and screening of the artwork with survivors’ stories

Due to the limited capacity of the conference room, this event is by invitation only.
If you would like to attend, please adress your request to Pierre-Antoine Possa, pa.possa@redcrossmuseum.ch.

For interested parties abroad, this event will be broadcasted over our Youtube Channel.
Registration to participate in the discussion is required.
