Preventing and responding to gender-based violence during the war and in post-war settings

WAVE launched a new project in collaboration with OSCE to fill the gap on how to meaningfully support survivors of violence and civil society organizations (CSOs) in conflict and post-conflict areas.  Based on the expertise of women’s organizations, a toolkit will be developed not only to present the harm and challenges posed by conflicts, but also to document promising first-hand practices with concrete examples from four WAVE members; their initiatives and recommendations as women’s organizations who experience and have experienced war. 

The WAVE members involved in the project are the Sexual Assault Crisis Center (Yerevan, Armenia), Women Fund Sukhumi (Kutaisi and Tbilisi, Georgia), Foundation United Women Banja Luka (Banja Luka, Bosnia & Herzegovina), and Centre “Women’s Perspectives” (Lviv, Ukraine).
