travels. The first section of this article introduces our study participants and ethnographic approach. The second section revisits Rabo’s (2008) distinction between ‘doing’ and ‘talking family’, exploring Syrian women’s multiple, and sometimes contradictory, ways of navigating gender relations in exile.

Simulating Dangers in ‘The Field’ One of the most prominent responses to ‘duty of care’ has been the creation and proliferation of HEAT trainings as often-mandatory pre-deployment preparation – ‘no training, no fly’, as one informant noted. 21 These trainings comprise three-to-five-day residential courses to prepare participants to confront a range of threats in the discharge of their duties. They are often outsourced to

a study on all the sexual violence victims in Africa who had received care and support from the organisation. Of all the participants ( n = 13,000), 7.5 per cent were male. The findings reveal that limited research on the forms of CRSV/M poses a gap in the knowledge on how to respond legally, psychologically and psychosocially; and especially as through experiencing CRSV, men have specific health, psychosocial, legal, and safety needs ( Kapur and Muddell, 2016 : 3
