Panel on Sexual Violence Against Men and Boys


Sexual violence against men and boys: Breaking the silence

Sexual violence is a burning issue in the humanitarian response, but what is the impact on men and boys who are victims of sexual violence? Stigma, homophobia, and traditional gender roles make reaching male survivors especially challenging. In this panel, leading experts will discuss emerging approaches to reaching male survivors of sexual violence.

The panel will include an open discussion with the audience, followed by a reception. 

The Director General at ICRC, Yves Daccord and the Swiss Agency for Development Coordination will deliver opening remarks.

Thursday, March 23, 2017 from 18:00 to 20:00

  • Louise AUBIN, Deputy Director, Division of International Protection, UNHCR
  • Chris DOLAN, Executive Director, Refugee Law Project
  • Charu Lata HOGG, Director, All Survivors Project, Williams Insititute, UCLA School of Law and Associate Fellow, Chatham House


  • Prof Doris SCHOPPER, Director, CERAH

The panel discussion is co-sponsored by the Swiss Agency for Development Coordination, ICRC, UNHCR and CERAH.
