Training and Events
The Institute for Research into Superdiversity at the University of Birmingham and Doctors of the World UK are planning an online interactive workshop on the theme of sexual and gender-based violence experienced by forced migrants.
The purpose of the workshop is to share the findings of the UK SEREDA project, undertaken to understand the nature and incidence of sexual and gender-based violence (SGBV) experienced by forced migrants residing in the UK, and to work collectively to develop recommendations to help improve the lives of SGBV survivors, build their resilience and reduce vulnerability.
The online workshop will take place on 23 June from 13.00 to 14.30 using the virtual platform Microsoft Teams.
