Sian Thomas, Hoayda Darkal, Lisa Goodson

Research output: Working paper/PreprintWorking paper


This working paper sets out findings from semi-structured interviews with 26 stakeholders working with forced migrant survivors of sexual and gender-based violence (SGBV) in the UK, as part of the SEREDA project. The paper first sets the context for the research, outlines the background to the project and describes the methodology adopted for this paper. It then outlines the preliminary findings from the interviews, exploring definitions of SGBV, the experiences and needs of forced migrant survivors, and the support provided by participants’ organisations to meet these needs. The paper then highlights the challenges for support provision at the individual, organisational and structural levels, and sets out participants’ recommendations for policy and practice
