Self Help AfricaGender, News

The Irish Consortium on Gender Based Violence are launching their report on Women, War and Displacement in UCD on Wednesday 16 November. As a member organisation of the consortium, we would like to extend this invite to our supporters. Click here for event and registration details.

The report illustrates the connection between heightened conflict, displacement and increased levels of gender based violence, and argues for a more robust gendered dimension of GBV response in the Global Compacts on Migration and Responsibility Sharing for Refugees, to be produced over the next two years. In addition, case studies drawn from the programmes of ICGBV membership agencies are featured in the document, giving voice to women who have experienced gender based violence as a result of conflict and displacement.

As part of the launch ICGBV will be holding a roundtable discussion on conflict, displacement and gender based violence, and the gendered dimension of the refugee crisis. The launch will be hosted by UCD Centre for Humanitarian Action.

Location: William Jefferson Clinton Auditorium, UCD Belfield, Dublin 4
Time & Date: 1pm – 2.50pm, Wednesday 16th November 2016
