Evaluation report: Addressing harmful social and gender norms in humanitarian settings: engaging faith leaders and communities

How to improve approaches to challenge harmful social and gender norms, and their underlying power structures, in humanitarian contexts? This is an evaluation of a pilot project answering that question: By training faith-leaders and through discussion groups with members of faith-communities, the pilot aims to: 1. Engage faith leaders to publicly speak out against sexual and gender based violence (SGBV) and model gender equality; 2. Address negative concepts of masculinities and harmful social norms among both men and women to promote effective sustainable large-scale transformation at the community level; 3. Equip communities as first responders to SGBV  through its bottom-up approach; 4. Tackle root causes of SGBV by challenging harmful social and gender norms.
