Project Details

Description

The project Addressing sexual violence against refugee women (ASVARW) runs between January 2017-June 2018. Sexual violence against refugee and asylum-seeker women is a dramatic phenomenon across Europe and the Mediterranean countries. Several international agencies and institutions – like UN, UNHCR, Council of Europe, and European Parliament – have pointed out the urgent need for specific policy measures on the issue, as the risks of sexual violence make women more vulnerable.
