Academics, Policymakers and NGOs come together to discuss Stigma and Children Born of War
Sabine Lee, CHIBOW ITN coordinator, participated in a workshop organised by LSE’s Centre for Women, Peace and Security, focused on addressing the policy gap on the subject of Stigma and Children Born of War. The workshop was organised in conjunction with the launch of the UK’s Principles for Global Action to Prevent and Address Stigma Associated With Conflict-Related Sexual Violence, and a blog on the principles can be read here.
Other representatives from academia, policymaking and civil society present at the workshop included the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, save the Children, War Child, UNICEF, International Committee of the Red Cross, centre for Women War Victims and UN Office of the Special Representative of the Secretary-General on Sexual Violence in Conflict.
During the workshop, Lee, along with other participants, had the opportunity to contribute to the development of preliminary policy and research recommendations for future work emerging from the launch of the Principles for Global Action.
