To improve understanding of potential protection options for refugees and internally displaced persons fleeing sexual and gender-based violence, the Human Rights Center at the University of California, Berkeley, School of Law launched a four-country qualitative study in 2012. The research had three main aims: to identify and describe models of temporary physical shelter available to displaced persons in humanitarian settings; to shed light on challenges and strategies relevant to the provision of safe shelter to members of displaced communities; and to identify critical protection gaps.
