  • Where Vulnerability Meets Power: – protecting children during conflicts and humanitarian disasters at the British Psychological Society Offices, 16 October 2017, London

    Our Director, Charu Lata Hogg spoke about the vulnerabilities of boys to sexual violence in situations of conflict and displacement. This symposium brought together humanitarians, psychologists, criminologists and child safeguarding specialists to explore the nature and causes of abuse to children during emergencies, and to show how those entrusted with protecting children can turn into abusers. The symposia will also look for solutions in terms of the systems, procedures and support required to ensure that children can be kept safe.

  • Launch of All Survivors Project’s report ‘Legacies and Lessons: Sexual Violence against men and boys in Bosnia & Herzegovina and Sri Lanka’ at Chatham House, 16 May 2017, London

    The panel also discussed local and international efforts to prevent and respond to sexual and gender-based violence. How can international and local communities hold perpetrators accountable? What structures are in place to help support victims of sexual violence across the world? And, if gender norms which trigger sexual violence against women in conflict also apply to men, why then do international frameworks on sexual violence only seem to apply to women?

  • All Survivors Project Director discusses past and present legal barriers for Sri Lankan male survivors of sexual violence

    “…sexual violence against men and boys, particularly in the context of detention under a previous infamous security legislation, has only recently begun to be recognised as among the numerous abuses that have taken place within the context of the armed conflict. A proposed Counter Terrorism Act (CTA) which is awaiting Parliamentary approval threatens to continue prolonged detention without charge. If approved this counter-terrorism bill could continue to facilitate human rights abuses in detention.” 26 June 2017.
