Co-creating a counselling method for refugee women GBV victims (CCM-GBV) 


Since 2015, SOLWODI has increasingly been approached by social workers working with refugees that asked for help in cases in which refugee women have suffered gender-specific violence.


This situation not only affects SOLWODI, but also many other non-governmental organisations (NGOs) within the European Union. Therefore, SOLWODI launched the project "Co-creating a counselling method for refugee women GBV victims" (CCM-GBV) together with other European partners. During the two-year project (November 2017 - October 2019), refugee women in countries of the main refugee routes will be informed about their rights, supported and encouraged to report their experience of violence, while at the same time a special counselling method is developed. You can also visit our project facebook page "EU Ccm-Gbv Project" for more information.


Project partners are the Italian Refugee Council (CIR) (Italy), the Greek Refugee Council (GRC) (Greece), G.I.R.A.F.F.A. onlus (Giraffa) (Italy), the Cyprus Refugee Council (CY.R.C.) (Cyprus), Suomen Setlementtiliitto (Setlement) (Finland) and the Jesuit Refugee Service (JRS) (Croatia). The European Institute for Crime Prevention and Control, affiliated with the United Nations (HEUNI), supports the monitoring and evaluation of the project. The European Network of Migrant Women (Brussels) helps to organise an EU expert meeting. The project is co-financed by the EU Directorate-General for Justice under the EU programme "Rights, Equality and Citizenship" (2014 - 2020).
