What is nature and prevalence of conflict-related sexual violence against men and boys? Why is this form of abuse so little-reported on, and how can it be better exposed and acted on? What might international human rights and humanitarian organizations do to ensure men and boys are not overlooked in efforts to address sexual and gender-based violence in conflict?
The current business model for most human rights organizations in low- and middle-income countries is to set up as a non-profit entity that is financed primarily through foreign charitable grants.

The webinar will explore these and other issues and ask – are there new business models for human rights work?
