Safe Haven - Sheltering Displaced Persons from Sexual and Gender-Based Violence 

Across the globe, rape and sexual torture are committed during periods of armed conflict or natural disaster. However, the risk of sexual and gender-based violence continues for many even once they have fled to a refugee or internal displacement camp. Providing protection in these insecure settings, where resources are scarce, can be tremendously challenging. This publication presents four reports that examine shelters in Haiti, Kenya, Colombia and the Thailand/Burma border. A fifth comparative report summarises the unique challenges that shelter-providers face, as well as strategies for protecting and serving refugees and internally displaced persons in camps and urban areas. The reports, which were requested by the UNHCR, also include recommendations for improved security and call attention to protection gaps that leave many male and LGBT survivors especially vulnerable.
