Reaching out: preventing and addressing school-related gender-based violence in Viet Nam. Volume 1 (in Vietnamese)
UNESCO Bangkok and Regional Bureau for Education in Asia and the Pacific
Global human rights legislation protects all people against discrimination and violence in education, irrespective of their sex, sexual orientation or gender identity and expression. Viet Nam has committed to a range of global conventions to end school-related gender-based violence (SRGBV). Putting these commitments into practice requires first recognising the fact that schools can be sites of violence, and considering the nature of SRGBV in practice so that it can be prevented and its impacts mediated. This report sits within broader efforts by the Government of Viet Nam and in particular the Ministry of Education and Training (MOET) to recognise, and respond to, SRGBV in schools in Viet Nam. It represents one practical research-based step amongst many in Viet Nam’s response to SRGBV.
