    UNICEF GBViE Podcast Season 2, Episode 1: The role of linguistic and cultural mediators in supporting migrant and refugee survivors of violence in Europe

    34:21

    Despite widespread violence along the migration routes to Europe, migrant and refugee survivors of violence still face significant obstacles in accessing support services once in Europe. This is due to poor referral networks, lack of information, and complicated systems of care. The limited number of linguistic and cultural mediators (LCM) and interpreters trained in how to support survivors is also a key barrier. LCMs provide interpretation but also share information, offer support, and help refugees and migrants connect to services. That is why the Women’s Refugee Commission (WRC) and UNICEF developed this training curriculum, which aims to equip LCMs with the foundational knowledge they need to support survivors according to their role. In this episode, mediators and experts explain more about the role of LCMs and how the curriculum has helped to provide better support to survivors.

    UNICEF GBViE Podcast Season 1, Episode 19: How to be accountable to women and girls while addressing Sexual Exploitation and Abuse (SEA)

    48:48

    In the last 20 years, successive SEA scandals have made media headlines: revelations that peacekeepers in Bosnia were involved in sex trafficking were followed by reports of aid workers raping or engaging in transactional sex in refugee camps in West Africa, which were in turn followed by scandals in Haiti, Liberia, and most recently, the Central African Republic. SEA is a form of GBV experienced by survivors.  We need to ensure that reporting SEA accounts for the survivor-centered approach that governs GBV response services and that the burden of proof is not unreasonably placed on survivors. In this episode, two of UNICEF’s experts on SEA and GBV, Lorenza Trulli and Sunita Palekar Joergensen tell us more about how SEA and GBV service provision are integral parts of the same puzzle, how to place survivors are the center of the protection against SEA.

    UNICEF GBViE Podcast Season 1, Episode 16: Making the Invisible Visible: working with unaccompanied and separated girls in Europe

    49:56

    To mark the International Day of the Girl on October 11th, this episode highlights how migration of adolescent girls increases their vulnerability towards GBV. Migration routes are notoriously dangerous for adolescent girls. Many are fleeing violence and abuse or are trafficked, which only increases their vulnerability to violence and exploitation. They face specific risks related to gender-based violence before, during and after migration. Leaving home may not be the escape they hoped for, as they continue to be at risk in countries of transit and arrival when they arrive in Europe. To shed a light on the situation of girls, UNICEF published Analysis on unaccompanied and separated girls titled “Making the Invisible Visible: the identification of unaccompanied and separated girls in Bulgaria, Greece, Italy and Serbia”. This report highlights how lack of understanding on gender dynamics and needs, and appropriate identification and support systems is making girls ‘invisible’ and thus, hindering their access to rights and services, and leaving them at further risk of abuse, exploitation and violence.  Related resources: Making the ‘Invisible’ visible, Analysis Note Making the ‘Invisible’ visible video Pocket Guide to support the design, implementation and evaluation of a girls’ empowerment program with a focus on Serbia and Bulgaria Webinar on the Analysis

    UNICEF GBViE Podcast Season 1, Episode 15: GBV risk mitigation into Global WASH Cluster

    14:52

    In this episode, Masumi Yamashina from the UNICEF GBViE team discusses with Franck Bouvet, Deputy Global WASH Cluster Coordinator about the Global WASH Cluster’s initiatives to integrate GBV into their work. Gender-based violence and WASH have strong relations. For example, the design and structure of WASH facilities have direct impact of safety of women and girls when they access and use WASH facilities. But it also has direct impact of their decision of whether they use them or not. WASH is also one of key sectors that address women and girls’ needs for menstrual health and hygiene.

    UNICEF GBViE Podcast Season 1, Episode 14: GBV risk mitigation into Global Nutrition Cluster

    28:35

    In this episode, Masumi Yamashina from the UNICEF GBViE team discusses with Anteneh Dobamo, the Nutrition Cluster Coordinator, Rapid Response Team of the Global Nutrition Cluster who has led GBV risk mitigation into Globa Nutrition Cluster’s work. Gender-based violence and nutrition are strongly related. For example, GBV is one of drivers of malnutrition and gender/power dynamics in the home have major implications on the effectiveness of nutrition interventions and uptake of the services. Nutrition actors target the most vulnerable children and women who are also very vulnerable to GBV. More collaboration between nutrition and GBV actors will have a very positive impact for both sides.
