Preventing GBV without discrimination, but with recognition.

Published on 20.12.2019 at 17:41

GBV is both a cause and a consequence of gender inequalities and human rights violations, which undermines health, dignity, security and autonomy of its survivors. On our new journey to address GBV through youth work, we aim at strengthening the capacity of youth & youth workers who are gender diversity & LGBTIQ+ rights advocates with quality and accessible GBV prevention skills and tools. 

 

Today, there is inconsistency in how GBV is defined. Single indicators in GBV prevention are not enough to see targets and set preventive measures. For instance, estimates by WHO indicate that about 1 in 3 of women & girls worldwide have experienced physical and/or sexual intimate partner violence or non-partner sexual violence within their lifetime. But what about the marginalised LGBTIQ+ community? 

 

Currently, there is a need to integrate a gender and LGBTIQ+ rights perspective in the design, implementation, monitoring and evaluation of all GBV prevention initiatives to further gather information about men, boys and LGBTIQ+ people’s perceptions on GBV. Only then, we can assess whether progress is being made or not, and stimulate public debate so that GBV prevention is owned by young generation. 

 

Without a clear understanding of the conditions under which various forms of GBV are likely to happen, we thus cannot design sustainable preventive interventions. A lot of what we know about GBV comes from survivors or witnesses. Not many turn to the perpetrators to understand how GBV is used in their particular setting. Our journey to GBV prevention, is one of recognition and without discrimination.
