Monitoring and reporting incidents of sexual and gender-based violence across the refugee journey

Research output: Working paper


This paper considers the way in which incidents of sexual and gender-based violence (SGBV) have been recorded across the refugee journey to date. It takes a detailed look at current mechanisms used to record and monitor instances of SGBV and assesses the strengths and weaknesses of current systems. The barriers hindering the accurate recording of SGBV cases are discussed in relation to gendercultural norms, political, and practical dilemmas associated with self-reporting SGBV incidences. The importance and utility of developing more robust and systematic monitoring systems are finally considered alongside a series of practical and actionable recommendations on how to improve the
monitoring of SGBV across the refugee journey.
