Join UNGEI and the Global Working Group to end SRGBV at CIES 2017

Measuring gender and violence in education:
Problems and Prospects
Monday, March 6 - 1:15 to 2:45pm
Sheraton Atlanta, 1, Georgia 7 (South Tower)

This panel presented by members of the Global Working Group to end SRGBV, proposes practical methodologies and frameworks for measuring SRGBV embedded in a gender-based conceptualization of violence in schools and discusses approaches by which these tools could be adapted in varied contexts. The presentations offer the overall scope of the problem via evidence from different regions of the world; findings from the pilot of a measurement framework for SRGBV interventions; a proposed conceptual framing of SRGBV to support the monitoring of the SDG indicator on school violence; and a tool to map evidence gaps in SRGBV.

Presenters: GEM Report, USAID, UNGEI, ECCN

Highlighted Session: Pathways to gender equality
and preventing cycles of violence in and through education
Monday, March 6 - 3:15 to 4:45pm
Sheraton Atlanta, Grand Ballroom A (South Tower)

This panel will be exploring the pathways by which SRGBV can be addressed and prevented and which involve interventions both within and outside the school. The panellists will present evidence and findings from low income settings including conflict and post-conflict environments to articulate lessons from engaging youth, men and boys; policy decisions and how they influence planning processes; and lessons from a toolkit enabling teachers and students to explore gender norms and stereotypes in the classroom and within the school.

Presenters: UNICEF, Institute of Education - UCL, Promundo US, UNESCO

Presentation in Panel: Addressing SRGBV in learning
spaces for refugee children and adolescents
Tuesday, Mar 7 - 10 am to 11:30 am
Sheraton Atlanta, 1, Atlanta 4 (North Tower)

In October 2016, the WG in partnership with the Inter-Agency Network for Education in Emergencies (INEE) launched a global survey to gather information on approaches and responses to SRGBV being adopted by development and humanitarian actors working in situations of conflict. The purpose of the survey was to generate a snapshot of strategies currently being used to address GBV in learning spaces for refugees, and identify gaps in programming and policy.

The survey was translated into four languages (Arabic, Spanish, French and Portuguese) and disseminated widely through the INEE and UNGEI networks. The presentation will share findings of the survey as well as insights and reflections for evidence building and programming in this area.
