Understanding Sexual and Gender- Based Violence against Refugees with a Communication Disability

http://www.elrha.org/researchdatabase/understanding-sexual-gender-based-violence-refugees-communication-disability/


This literature review was undertaken as part of the collaborative project by Manchester Metropolitan University, Communicability Global, UNHCR Rwanda and Institute for Human Centered Design, in 2016.

Since there are extremely few publications on the specific risk or experience of refugees with communication disability to SGBV, this review describes, synthesises and summarises contributions made to the literature in the fields of disability, communication disability, and sexual and gender-based violence both in humanitarian and non-humanitarian contexts, to give the reader a holistic understanding of the issues addressed in the accompanying project, Supporting refugee survivors of Sexual and Gender- Based Violence who have a Communication Disability – Rwanda.
