17.09.2018 / Created by (EMWF)

This report presents the results of a research conducted with female refugees living in North Jordan and South Lebanon who are Syrian Nationals and Palestinian Refugees from Syria, as well as gender based violence (GBV) case workers who provide services to refugee women and girls who experience GBV. Through focus group discussions, interviews, and clinic-based surveys, the report examines the scope of violence perpetrated against women and girl refugees from Syria living in Tyre and Saida (Lebanon), and in Ajloun, and Jerash (Jordan); and the intersection of reproductive health and gender based violence; it also explores the perceptions of refugee women and girls, and the services provided to them.
