“Where Vulnerability Meets Power: – protecting children during conflicts and humanitarian disasters” at the British Psychological Society Offices, 16 October 2017, London, United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland

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.
