PSVI: Partners

We work closely with other governments, international organisations, Parliamentarians, civil society, survivor groups, experts and practitioners from around the world in the fight against sexual violence. Below you can find a selection of these partners.

The PSVI Team of Experts

The PSVI Team of Experts (ToE) was established at the end of 2012. The ToE is one part of the Civilian Stabilisation Group (CSG) - a flexible and diverse pool of skilled individuals, managed by the UK Government’s Stabilisation Unit – who deploy to fragile and conflict-affected states to assist the UK government delivery of national security priorities.

The ToE currently consists of 38 independent experts (26 women), including criminal lawyers, policing advisers, gender based violence experts, international investigating officers, training experts, and psychosocial experts. The ToE does not gather evidence or provide direct psychosocial support to survivors but, is there to strengthen UK specialist capabilities to support the work of national and international bodies, NGOs, and governments in preventing and responding to conflict-related sexual violence. Deployments have been carried out to various countries including Syria, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Bangladesh, Iraq, Kosovo, Libya, Mali and the Democratic Republic of Congo to support project work being delivered by Posts or funded through implementing partners.
