Examining Women and Girls’ Safe Spaces in Humanitarian Contexts: Research Findings from Northwest Syria and South Sudan (Policy Brief)

Women and girls’ safe spaces (WGSS) form one of the most widely implemented GBV prevention and response programming interventions in humanitarian contexts. Despite their widespread use and potential to increase the well-being, safety, and empowerment of women and girls, there is a lack of rigorous evidence regarding the role of these spaces in participants’ lives. CARE conducted a study to examine the effectiveness of its WGSS in Northwest Syria and South Sudan. This report provides detailed analysis of findings from this research. This high-level brief provides an overview of the key findings and program, policy and future research recommendations from this study.
