Today, the UK findings of the SEREDA project, by the University of Birmingham with the University of Melbourne, and Bilkent and Uppsala Universities and NGO partners are published. This is an incredibly important though difficult subject of research, supported and part-funded by Lansons’ co-founders Clare Parsons and Tony Langham on behalf of Lansons.
Over the past three years, the SEREDA research project set out to understand the nature and incidence of sexual and gender-based violence (SGBV) experienced by refugees who have fled conflict and are residing in countries of refuge.
The extensive research conducted which includes interviews with forced migrants and service providers of SGBV victims looks to inform policy making and offer guidance to practitioners and service providers in improving the lives of SGBV survivors.
The project has been led by Jenny Phillimore, Professor of Migration and Superdiversity and Founding Director, Institute for Research into Superdiversity at the University of Birmingham and is being presented in the House of Lords today.
In a special interview with Lansons’ Tony Langham, Jenny Phillimore and Sandra Iman Pertek, GBV Researcher and Gender Specialist, involved in the project discuss their work and campaigning for improving lives and accelerating change.
