SVRI MEMBER'S REQUEST

My name is Catherine Akurut, a doctoral candidate at Nelson Mandela University's Conflict management PhD program. I am conducting a dissertation research on humanitarian organisations who work with male victims of sexual violence in armed conflicts in Africa. I am particularly looking to recruit participants from these organizations.

This exploratory study will use semi-structured interview questions as the primary method of data collection.

If you are a humanitarian organisation working in armed conflicts in Africa and are interested in participating, please contact me via Email: s209043660 at live.nmmu.ac.za<mailto:s209043660 at live.nmmu.ac.za> / cathakurut at gmail.com<mailto:cathakurut at gmail.com>
