UPCOMING 07 DECEMBER: REFUGEE COMPACT – GIRL CHILD PERSPECTIVE

Posted on Posted in NEWS

  REFUGEE GIRL CHILD IN THE GLOBAL COMPACTS Women and girls who flee conflict, crisis and natural disasters, or who migrate for other reasons, such as domestic violence or poverty, face specific threats, including human trafficking, exploitation and sexual violence and a denial of their basic human rights. Yet there is a lack of interest and understanding for the specific situation of women and girls on the move by decision-makers and the media. In addition, despite gains in policy and practice in recent years, the capacities of refugee women and girls are too often overlooked. They are underserved, poorly protected, and excluded from decision-making processes.
