Special Feature, Gender-Based Violence in Emergencies

This special issue featured on the Human Practices Network journal focuses on gender-based violence (GBV) in humanitarian crises settings. The issue presents findings of a literature review of recent publications on GBV in humanitarian contexts. It also presents an evaluation discussing conflicting perspectives on the GBV issue. An additional analysis discusses the International Rescue Committees (IRC's) experience operationalising GBV. Yet another feature looks at programming choices agencies can make to help prevent and reduce GBV and ways of using service-based data in programming. There are also various examples of campaigns and efforts to address GBV in West Africa, in the Democratic Republic of Congo, in Darfur, and by the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), by the World Food Programme, as well as by Plan International.
