EXTENDED DEADLINE: Survey on Gender-Based Violence in learning spaces for refugees and displaced

Dear colleagues,

The Global Working Group to End School-Related Gender-Based Violence (SRGBV), is conducting a survey in order to gather information about responses and common approaches to addressing gender-based violence in and around learning spaces for refugee and displaced children and adolescents.

Access to education and safe learning environments remains a gap in crises and humanitarians settings, particularly for refugee and displaced children and adolescents. While there is a growing body of literature, guidance, tools and knowledge on the provision of education as safe spaces for displaced children and adolescents, there is still a dearth of knowledge about the prevalence of gender-based violence within these learning spaces, as well as effective approaches to prevent and respond to violence.

What is SRGBV?
School-Related Gender-Based Violence (SRGBV) is defined as acts or threats of sexual, physical or psychological violence occurring in and around schools, perpetrated as a result of gender norms and stereotypes and enforced by unequal power dynamics. It also refers to the differences between girls’ and boys’ experiences of and vulnerabilities to violence.
