EXPECTED RESULTS

 
  • Result 1: Improved knowledge and understanding of the qualitative features of sexual and gender based violence within the refugee population in Greece

Existing knowledge is scarce, fragmented and lacks qualitative information that can contribute to effective response strategies. The project contributes to an improved understanding of the qualitative conditions of SGBV within the refugee population and unifies all existing sources. This mapping will be invaluable for designing effective and integrated response strategies.

 

  • Result 2: Improved cooperation and networking between professionals working in the field to develop an integrated approach towards SGBV

The project will facilitate multisector and interdisciplinary cooperation and networking between professionals that operate in specific refugee camps and municipalities. By bringing together all actors/professionals active in the field, the project allows not only capacity building and peer to peer learning but also the sharing of practices, coordination and more integrated approaches. It also facilitates approaches that take into account gender issues in the provision of services to the refugee communities.

  • Result 3: Increased capacity of 120-150 professionals and case workers in camps and the new accommodation scheme to detect, identify, address and prevent incidents of SGBV and better address the needs of SGBV survivors

The project will increase capacities and coordination between professionals at the national level to better identify and respond to refugees victims of gender based violence and those at risk of violence. This will allow them to better detect, identify, address and prevent incidents of SGBV in their work and in the services they provide.

 

  • Result 4: Improved awareness within the refugee community on SGBV and selected individuals empowered to act as multipliers

The project will engage in an innovative and participatory dialogue with refugee communities and victims themselves (identified for example through shelters or through professionals active in the field) in an effort to provide practical information on SGBV and existing solutions but also to empower individuals to act as multipliers within their broader communities. The empowerment groups are a methodological innovation that will be tested and is expected to provide good results. This is expected to indirectly increase reporting of SGBV cases to the authorities and service providing organisations.
