Leitner Human Rights Clinic Students Present Gendered-Approach Inputs to UNHCR


Students in the Walter Leitner International Human Rights Clinic presented a report to representatives of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) in New York, urging the UNHCR to include concrete, gendered-approach inputs in the forthcoming Global Compact for Refugees for consideration by the United Nations General Assembly in 2018. The students discussed their analysis of case studies of gender-based violence against Syrian refugee women and girls in Lebanon, Turkey, and Jordan. The report was written by clinic students Reece Pelley, Shade Quailey, Monica Uppal, and Rachel Yood, and supervised and edited by clinical teaching fellow Esra Alamiri and Professor Chi Adanna Mgbako.
