The target thematic areas for the Preventing Sexual Violence Initiative in DRC in 2019/20 are:
- Support for a more effective legal response to sexual violence in conflict in DRC, including sexual slavery. Under this theme they are particularly interested in bids that include some or all of the following: that can demonstrate strategic impact; that will increase access to justice for victims; that aim to strengthen investigative and judicial responses to sexual violence in conflict in DRC; that take a sensitive approach to tackling a culture of impunity, including consideration of the rights of suspects; that are conscious of and mitigate against some of the negative unintended consequences of interventions in this field.
- Challenging harmful attitudes towards survivors and victims of sexual violence in conflict, including victims of sexual slavery, and working to end the stigma they suffer.
Under both themes, they are particularly interested in projects that seek to apply innovative and/or strategic approaches to tackle sexual violence, including supporting the implementation of DRC government commitments.
