National outrage: Violence against internally displaced women and girls in eastern Chad
November 2010

The government of Chad is failing to protect internally displaced women and girls, according to a report by the Internal Displacement Monitoring Centre (IDMC) of the Norwegian Refugee Council (NRC).

As the world marks the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, internally displaced women and girls in eastern Chad face widespread and serious violence at the hands of armed militias and bandits, government troops, and members of their own communities and families. “Their rights are consistently violated,” said NRC Secretary General Elisabeth Rasmusson, “not only by perpetrators of violence, but also by a government that does not protect or assist them or provide access to justice.”
