Global Evaluation of Sexual Violence

A global evaluation of the International Committee of the Red Cross’s Sexual Violence strategy and field practices

In 2015, the Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement adopted a resolution to conduct further joint action on prevention and response to Gender Based Violence (GBV), with a focus on Sexual Violence (SV) in armed conflict and GBV in emergencies. According to the ICRC Annual Reports from 2014 and 2015, institutional-wide efforts were made to integrate SV response mechanisms, including training and capacity-building efforts, development of tools and materials, and increased advocacy. This included the expansion of new activities taking place in CAR, Colombia, DRC, Mali, Somalia, and South Sudan, as well as assessments in additional countries including Afghanistan, Egypt, Kenya, Lebanon, Mexico, Nepal, Nigeria, Papa New Guinea, Syria, and other countries affected by the Syrian conflict.

As part of this response, the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) contracted Triangle to conduct a formative evaluation of the ICRC’s multidisciplinary work on SV globally, as well as help inform, strengthen, and reinforce ICRC’s practices and processes on this complex topic in the coming years. The evaluation methodology covers a global review of ICRC’s SV Strategy and includes three case studies of Lebanon, Mali and Columbia.
