Abstract

Over 82 million people were forcibly displaced in 2020, around half being female. Women and girls face specific vulnerabilities in forced migration including sexual and gender-based violence (SGBV). The exact proportion of forced migrants experiencing SGBV is unknown but thought to exceed 50%. Men, boys and LGBTQIA+ people can also be victims. Jenny Phillimore and Sandra Pertek shed light upon forced migrants’ experiences of SGBV based on interviews with 68 forced migrant SGBV victims, and 26 service providers working with victims, between 2018 and 2020.
