Gender-Based Violence and Access to Food and Water in Humanitarian Crises: Is there a Connection?
Meg Satterthwaite, faculty director, CHRGJ; professor, the Global Justice Clinic
What on-the-ground progress has been made since the catastrophic earthquake that hit Haiti in early 2010? This discussion will cover a one-year study aimed to identify links between access to basic resources and increased vulnerability to gender-based violence for
residents living in Port-au-Prince camps for the internally displaced. Satterthwaite will present key findings of the project, which will be made public in a fall 2011 report, as well as recommendations resulting from the research, aimed at both to the international community and the government of Haiti.
