The ongoing conflict in Darfur, Sudan has been characterized by widespread violence against women. At the same time, in the refuge of internally displaced persons camps throughout Darfur, there is heightened concern for women’s and girls’ vulnerability to violence by community members, as well as by militia groups, and recognition that large-scale displacement exacerbates the risk of gender-based violence. In parallel, human rights commentators condemn the lack of justice for sexual and gender-based violence victims in Darfur, citing stigma, inequality and a discriminatory legal system as root causes. Through a three-year training of trainers programme, Darfur legal professionals took part in a human rights-based education programme to incorporate sensitization on women’s rights within outreach projects delivered in internally displaced communities, and to build paralegal networks to advance access to legal mechanisms for Darfur’s women and girls. This practice note examines the value of such human rights-based interventions by drawing on findings from the Women’s Rights in Darfur Training of Trainers Programme.
