Preventing Sexual Violence in Conflict Initiative Conference 2022

Ten years after the launch of the United Kingdom Preventing Sexual Violence in Conflict Initiative (PSVI), the UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCDO) will host the second-ever international PSVI conference in London from November 28-29, 2022.

The PSVI conference will bring together over 50 government ministers, other government representatives, experts, and survivors from around the world, with the shared mission of ending conflict-related sexual violence. It will be an opportunity for the international community to listen to survivors, showcase progress, and most importantly, secure new global commitments to end sexual violence in conflict.

During the conference, Together for Girls and the Brave Movement, in collaboration with the FCDO, Safe to Learn, the Global Partnership for Education, and Education Cannot Wait, will co-create a session focused on the crucial role of education in protecting children, supporting survivors, and preventing sexual violence in conflict.

The session will feature remarks and discussion from government ministers, young leaders, and survivors of sexual violence outlining their solutions for preventing sexual violence in and through education, and building gender-responsive and transformative, as well as resilient, crisis-proof education systems.
