Dr Chris Dolan has worked extensively in sub-Saharan Africa in a range of academic, civil society and UN spaces.

Since 2006, as Director of the Refugee Law Project in Uganda, he has done extensive practical work with refugee and IDP survivors of sexual violence in conflict settings, as well as global advocacy to draw attention to the gaps in humanitarian support to male survivors of such violence. This work is contributing to more comprehensive and inclusive international policies and practice regarding men as victims of sexual violence, as well as on the connections to sexual violence against women.
