Reporting on Gender-Based Violence in the Syria Crisis: Training manual for facilitator

Publication

Five years on, the Syria Crisis shockwaves still reverberate across an already volatile region. Syrian women bear the full hardship of this open-ended conflict, as they pay the price of social stigma and displacement inside the country and in the five neighbouring countries, which are now home to more than four million refugees.  Almost always, they are affected by gender-based violence, which tends to increase in times of duress as familial bonds weaken as a result of forced migration and displacement.

Five Years of Saving Lives: The Regional Response to the Syria Crisis 2015

Publication

Syria is experiencing the biggest humanitarian crisis in the world today, and over the past five years, UNFPA has been providing critical services to thousands women and girls impacted by the crisis. As of December 2015, more than half of all Syrians have been forced to flee their homes. As the five-year conflict in the Syrian Arab Republic expands, bombings, shellings and terrorist attacks continue to kill, injure and displace millions of Syrians. Some 6.5 million people have been displaced within Syria itself, and over 4.6 million people live as refugees in neighbouring countries. As in all humanitarian emergencies, women and girls are among the most vulnerable victims.

Nine Ethical Principles: Reporting Ethically on Gender-Based Violence in the Syria Crisis 7 47 3 1 March 2015

Publications

Gender-based violence is a complicated and sensitive subject. Reporting on gender-based violence means discussing issues that are often considered ‘taboo,’ and talking publicly about intimate and distressing matters. This can be particularly challenging in countries where tradition and religion play an important role in everyday life.

Reporting on Gender-Based Violence in the Syria Crisis: Good Practices in the Media

Publication

Despite the efforts and engagement of local and regional media in highlighting and denouncing gender-based violence against women and girls in the six countries most-affected by the Syrian crisis (Syria, Lebanon, Jordan, Turkey, Iraq and Egypt), the bulk of coverage still – whether directly or indirectly – attributes stereotypical and predictable social images to women and girls. They are often represented as "victims" of forced and early marriage, who are submissive to an oppressively patriarchal and conservative community. Reports often focus too much on the subjects rather than exposing the full extent of the human rights violations or the underlying root causes that allow these actions to emerge and maintain their prominence in the region.
