MSM will manage project to end impunity of sexual and gender based violence in Uganda


In January 2019 MSM will start a 3-year project named ‘End Impunity on sexual and gender based violence (EIS)’. The project strengthens institutional and training capacity of police and judiciary to end impunity of perpetrators and support survivors of sexual and gender based violence (SGBV) in Uganda.

The appropriate skills and knowledge to handle SGBV cases and have perpetrators prosecuted successfully are not yet widely available in the police and judicial sector in Uganda. Through Project EIS, crucial training institutions for police and judiciary officers are equipped with the capacity to better address cases of SGBV in order to prosecute perpetrators and treat SGBV survivors with the sensitivity they deserve.

The goal of this project is to contribute to promoting just, peaceful and inclusive societies and achieving legitimate stability (SDG 16). Creating better access to knowledge on SGBV by providing necessary skills to key officers in the police and judicial sectors crucial contribution will be made in the fight against SGBV. As such, Project EIS translates into justice for perpetrators and survivors of sexual and gender based violence through improved service delivery.

In this project, MSM will work together with the Regional Training Facility of the International Conference on the Great Lakes Region (ICGLR-RTF), the Police College and the Judicial Training Institute (JTI) to make the fight against SGBV successful.

The contact person for this project is Dr. Astrid ter Wiel, Associate Consultant at MSM.
