MOVE to tackle mens violence against women through culturally sensitive approach

Node tabs


WWP EN is pleased to announce the launch of our new project, MOVE, which seeks to end men's violence against women through a culturally sensitive approach.

Displaced women and girls face increased risks and multiple forms of violence as a result of conflict, persecution and displacement. Differences in culture, religion, ethnic origin, national boundaries, and geographic region play a significant role in perceptions and attitudes towards gender-based violence. It is important not to stigmatize migrant men as (potential) perpetrators through whom sexual and gender-based violence is “imported” to Europe, while still responding to specific risk factors.

The MOVE project will engage professionals working in GBV prevention and frontline professionals working with(in) migrant communities, to share a culturally sensitive and ant-racist approach to addressing GBV.
