Project description

The omnipresence of male sexual violence during migration urges the need to study the impact of sexual violence on different health aspects of male migrants on the English Channel route in Belgium and France. A longitudinal and mixed-method study design will be applied. Methodologies include ethnographic fieldwork, qualitative interviews and Ecological Momentary Assessments with male migrants and focus-groups with practitioners.
