Legal Aid’s Four Pillars for Engaging Men and Boys in SGBV Prevention in Zaatari Refugee Camp


This report, based on ARDD-Legal Aid’s experiences of working with men and boys on SGBV prevention in Zaatari refugee camp, lays out four pillars of how SGBV prevention programs can be adapted to work effectively in the context. 

It first outlines the suitability of a psychosocial approach for SGBV prevention work in Zaatari, explaining how this can be used to build trust among participants, provide a useful service for male refugees, and create an environment in which progress can be made on sensitive gender questions. 

The report then focuses on, in turn, how to manage the stress and anger of refugees in Zaatari, how to understand prevailing conceptions of masculinities and gender relations, and how to ensure that the do no harm principle is adhered to in work in Zaatari.
