Gender Based Violence Against Women Displaced by the Syrian Conflict: Identifying Trends and More Effective Ways to Support Survivors

2015

How effective is the response to gender based violence (GBV) in the North of Jordan for Syrian Refugees?

 

IRCKHF was contracted by University of Minnesota School of Medicine to conduct research for generating evidence as to the extent, types and response to gender based violence in the context of the Syrian Crisis in Jordan  to improve prevention, protection and survivor support, particularly with regards to sexual violence. The methodology of study included surveys, focus groups and interviews. The research studied Southern Lebanon as well, in partnership with AUB, and both UNFPA Lebanon and UNFPA Jordan contributed 45 Dignity Kits each to the project, to be distributed by researchers to the Syrian refugee women who participated in the focus group discussions and interviews.

The  outcomes include: data on the extent and types of conflict-related gender based violence in refugee population, analysis of the effectiveness of the response to conflict-related GBV, and recommendations to improve the response.  The project was completed in September 2015.
