Report on the Male Survivor Only Day of the third South-South Institute on Sexual Violence against Men and Boys
This report was compiled after the third South-South Institute on Sexual Violence against Men and Boys held in Christchurch, Aotearoa (New Zealand), in November 2017
The South-South Institute was developed by Refugee Law Project in collaboration with First Step Cambodia and Male Survivors of Sexual Abuse Trust in New Zealand, in response to a major gap in research, activism and policy-making related to the experiences of men and boys in conflict and post-conflict settings.
In 2013 the Refugee Law Project hosted the first ever South-South Institute on Sexual Violence against Men and Boys (for video please click here). The second Institute, with an emphasis on sexual violence against men and boys in a post-conflict setting, was hosted by First Step Cambodia in Pnomh Penh in 2015. The third, focused on the relationship between histories of colonization and post-colonial abuse, was hosted by Male Survivors of Sexual Abuse Trust.
