What Research and Experience is telling us about positive and negative Masculinities

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

RLP at 20 is up in gears with several amazing initiatives and ground-breaking work. We recently concluded a Sexual Violence Symposium under the theme “Sexual Violence in Conflict: Advancing the Agenda?” (report yet to be published) and we are finalising arrangements for the upcoming South-South Institute on Sexual Violence Against Men and Boys in Conflict and Forced Displacement guided by the theme “Bridging the Sexual Violence Torture Divide” – all of which are important initiatives in advancing conversations on sexual violence in conflict.

Training Manual on Refugee Rights

This manual is of great value: We should not assume that duty bearers have been sufficiently trained on core concepts, nor should we assume that target beneficiaries are fully informed. What Refugee Law Project’s work has revealed again and again is that, in the absence of adequate training, duty bearers can make the
worst of mistakes with the best of intentions.

Joint statement by CAT & HURINET on torture

Following the recent horrific murder of the Assistant Inspector General of Police, Andrew Felix Kaweesi, thirteen men were detained at Nalufenya police station and are currently remanded to Luzira, Uganda's central prison. Serious allegations have been made in public media concerning their treatment while still at Nalufenya.

Please find attached a joint statement made by the Coalition Against Torture, of which Refugee Law Project is a member, together with the Coalition on Police Accountability and Security Sector Reform calling on the authorities to make proper investigation into these allegations, and, should they prove true, to disregard any evidence collected during torture.
