Using technology to address gender-based violence

This document reports several projects using mobile technology to improve assistance to victims of gender-based violence in conflict and post-conflict settings. In these kinds of situations, “Police are usually neither trusted nor are they able to respond adequately to incidents of GBV such that victims feel (and are) safe and perpetrators are prosecuted.” The projects identified several promising technologies, including apps and hotlines, but also noted that local context is important, plus “Dialog and trust-building should be in the center of all initiatives to address GBV.”
