The project partners finished the White paper on migrant and refugee – child friendly support services in cases of sexual and gender-based violence.

The White paper outlines the problem of GBV which is very complex precisely because of the fact that it is happening in all aspects of everyday life and also in the family, which is the most sensitive cell of the society, and because of the specificity of the relations between the perpetrators and the victims who are (usually) family members.

More vulnerable are, among others, children and minors, persons with psychological and physical disabilities, refugees, migrants, and members of ethnic minorities. The risk of violence and abuse is intensifying when

the victim is exposed to multiple discrimination or belongs to several vulnerable groups at the same time.

The White paper presents some recommendations towards the States and the professionals in order to deal with such cases in a more sensitive manner.
