To end sexual violence in fragile environments
Through the Foundation of The Grand Duke and The Grand Duchess, of which she is the president, The Grand Duchess has launched a number of initiatives to support vulnerable people both in Luxembourg and abroad. Having found herself particularly affected by the damage, isolation and stigma experienced by survivors of sexual violence in fragile environments, Her Royal Highness has decided to act on their behalf by hosting the international conference Stand Speak Rise Up! in cooperation with the Women’s Forum and with the support of the Luxembourg Government. The conference is in partnership with the Dr. Denis Mukwege Foundation and We Are Not Weapons of War.
HRH The Grand Duchess will convene leaders from the national and international community and from public, private, NGO, legal and academic sectors. This event will create a platform to connect stakeholders and survivors of sexual violence to build new partnerships, scale existing efforts, and identify innovative and lasting solutions.
The complete programme is available on the dedicated website.
