Dispelling Misconceptions about Sexual Violence against Men and Boys in Conflict and Displacement
Heleen Touquet, Sarah Chynoweth, Sarah Martin, Chen Reis, Henri Myrttinen, Philipp Schulz, Lewis Turner, and David Duriesmith

victimisation of adult men are currently unavailable, although one cross-sectional study found that, across six countries in the Asia Pacific, the prevalence of rape of men by men ranged from 1.5 per cent to 7.7 per cent ( Jewkes et al. , 2013 ). During armed conflict, social and structural protections break down and vulnerability to sexual violence – including by family and community members – increases. Yet men and boys, like women and girls ( Stark et al. , 2017 ), may

Four Conversations with Canadian Communications Officers
Dominique Marshall

’s fifteen local offices in Africa, Asia, the Middle East, the Caribbean, and South America, there is now a person responsible for communications. Similarly, over the past year, the CRC has created a unique program of training for ‘digital volunteer specialists’ across the organization. Falconer attributes the size and the originality of the program to established strengths of the organization: a network of volunteers who donate according to their individual experience and availability ( Glassford, 2018 ), as well as what she calls the ‘scalable’ nature of an organization

A Response to the Journal of Humanitarian Affairs Special Issue on Innovation in Humanitarian Action (JHA, 1:3)
Anna Skeels

strategic partnership with the Asia Disaster Reduction and Response Network (ADRRN) aimed at overcoming this bias towards international actors by placing engagement with local NGOs and affected communities at the centre of humanitarian innovation. By developing local approaches to innovation, grounding problem recognition and ideation at community level, and engaging with a wide range of stakeholders familiar with, and active in, these settings, our partnership aims to find and support solutions developed for, and by, affected communities themselves ( McClelland and Hill

three different continents – Africa, Asia and Australia – and increase the awareness of CRSV/M. Other scholars such as Gorris (2015 : 417) advocate for gender-inclusion, as it maintains neutrality. However, while the discourse of gender-inclusion is gender-neutral, its practice is not ( Achiam and Holmegaard, 2015 : 7), as existing interventions may not be suitable for men. While in favour of inclusion, Touquet and Gorris (2016 : 37) emphasise that gender

A Realistic Ambition?
Pierre Mendiharat, Elba Rahmouni, and Léon Salumu

, Asia and Latin America multiplied. To offset the burden such large cohorts were placing on health systems, we had to find ways to simplify and decentralise care. MSF contributed greatly to the operational research, and that effort brought us a certain fame in the global health world. The PEPFAR and Global Fund programmes were bearing fruit, and by the early 2010s, ARVs were available in most of the world’s countries; the barriers to treatment for people living with HIV lay

, these references also lead us into the global 1960s. It is only partly true that Biafra was the first postcolonial conflict that was discussed as a genocide – but the way these references worked changed with Biafra. Already before the American war in South East Asia, what is usually called the Vietnam War was then described as possibly genocidal. This was something that many New Leftists at least were concerned about. Some of their leading figures and intellectuals associated

Visual Advocacy in the Early Decades of Humanitarian Cinema
Valérie Gorin

of the Save the Children Fund “for a cause which it believes to be largely illusory and thoroughly inept”’ ( Record , 1921b : 83). The SCF thus advocated for using visual evidence: Yet we are content to hide our heads, ostrich-like, and thinking that because we will not see these things they do not exist, to pursue the even tenour of our way.… It is, in a very special sense, ‘eyes to the blind’ in this matter. With its emissaries scattered all over Europe and in Asia Minor, its central head quarters in Geneva and its well-informed information department, the IU

Governing Precarity through Adaptive Design

solidarity with its victims. For a couple of decades it was successful in publicly challenging Western foreign policy in Africa, Latin America and Southeast Asia ( Duffield, 2007 : 51–4). Having once exercised a moral leadership, however, after a long struggle against donor absorption and UN control, an international direct humanitarian engagement finally yielded amid the horrors of Iraq and Syria. The War on Terror imposed limitations. Compared to the 1970s and 1980s, humanitarian agencies found their political room for manoeuvre significantly
