Additional information

Christian Aid’s global strategy on tackling violence and building peace includes a focus on reducing the risk of Gender Based Violence (GBV), ensuring survivors receive adequate support, and that women, men and institutions are working together to change the conditions that lead to GBV. 

Christian Aid Ireland, jointly funded by the Irish Research Council New Foundations scheme, is coordinating this seminar to explore current policy approaches and debates relevant to development and humanitarian settings, and seek to understand how programming interventions can become more effective.
