Therapeutic Activism: Men of Hope Refugee Association Uganda Breaking the Silence over Male Rape in Conflict-related Sexual Violence

This report on Men of Hope’s ground-breaking activities emerges from our ongoing DFID-funded collaborative study with the Institute for Development Studies at the University of Sussex, and was written by Jerker Edström, Chris Dolan and Thea Shahrokh, with Onen David. It explores one central question, namely: ‘What makes it possible for male survivors of conflict-related sexual violence to organise and become activists, challenging discriminatory social and gender norms?’ 

The study finds that, despite pervasive discrimination, this group of male survivors has been able to develop resilience and mutual support through collective action. Further, the study finds that third-party service providers and non-governmental organisations can play an important support role in reinforcing the resilience and capacity of male survivors to organise collectively.

From Dakar to Delhi: Influencing Policy Discourse on Men and Masculinities

This paper was written in collaboration with our partners from Institute of Development Studies (IDS), Centre for Health and Social Justice (CHSJ), Men for Gender Equality Now (MEGEN). It discusses the process and progress of the men and masculinities stream of work at IDS, supported by the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida). This stream of work had the following objectives:
    •   Narrative: To challenge the discursive framing of both “men” and “masculinities” within development policy and programming that hinders progress toward gender justice.
    •   Analysis: To improve understandings of masculinities as they shape the “structures of constraint” that limit the achievement of gender justice and of strategies to address masculinities that can bring about and sustain change within these “structures of constraint.”

    •   Alliance: To strengthen networking and alliance-building between actors within the men and masculinities field and organisations working on issues of gender justice and sexual rights in different policy arenas, to become more effective in influencing global and local policy processes.

Global Summit to End Sexual Violence in Conflict

From 10-14 June 2014 the Refugee Law Project (RLP) participated in the week-long Global Summit to End Sexual Violence in Conflict, at the Excel Centre in London, a key event that was attended by 72 ministers, 103 countries and over 1,000 participants from around the globe. Key discussions and recommendations during this week-long event focused on accountability, support for survivors, security and justice sector reform and international cooperation.

With important contributions from a range of dignitaries, notably the British Foreign Secretary William Hague, the UN Special Envoy Angelina Jolie, the UN representative on sexual violence in conflict Zainab Bangura, and United States Secretary of State John Kerry, this event was a landmark in pushing for global synergy and demonstrated international commitment to ending sexual violence in conflict as well as violence in times of ‘peace.’
