IARS is pleased to offer evidence-based online training programme on Gender Sensitivity in the Asylum Process. The training is part of the three–year Comic Relief and Matrix Chambers funded project Abused No More: The Voices of Refugee and Asylum-seeking Women which is a user-led skills development and research programme focusing on the impact of gender-related violence on refugee and asylum-seeking women (RASW).

The online training programme is primarily aimed at legal and health professionals but it may be also used by other practitioners who work directly with refugee and asylum-seeking women.

It seeks to equip participants with practical information on how to support refugee and asylum-seeking women through application of relevant communication and interviewing techniques. It is the culmination of a year research that has been published under the title 'Abused No More: The Voices of Refugee and Asylum Seeking Women' . The research was conducted by refugee women who were trained as community researchers, and it provides evidence on the  experiences of refugee and asylum-seeking women who have been victims of gender-based violence.

The online training programme consists of:
