The needs of children born of conflict-related sexual violence (CRSV) are complex, largely unaddressed by humanitarian actors, and intersect with those of their mothers and families. However, available evidence on what works to address their complex needs through a survivor-centred approach remains scarce, and research on this topic in humanitarian settings even more so.
In order to fill this gap and building on the momentum created at the international level, the CBOW Project is developing a short in-depth course in partnership with international experts in this field and children born of CRSV activists, focused on building the capacities of humanitarian and human rights practitioners, as well as other professionals working to address CRSV through research, advocacy and policy-making, to better respond to the needs of children born of CRSV and of their families.
The short course will be based on evidence and will be piloted in spring 2024. If you want to stay informed about the course, please sign up here:
