Report – Protection in Focus
Emphase takes over the artistic direction and the layout of the SDC's magazine "Protection in Focus". In the first issue in the new look, 7 articles are supplemented with illustrations. Each issue will have a main colour. On the cover page, we illustrate an object related to the theme of the issue. Lead texts, info boxes and additional material pick up the different readerships according to their needs.
Humanitarian aid workers usually know before they arrive at a crisis site who is particularly at risk: it is the women and children. Often in these very words. However, the women's and children's perspective in no way explains what is really happening to men and women, girls and boys and non-binary people in the place where the aid is being provided.
In this issue of Protection in Focus, SDC wants us to look at aspects of gender and gender relations that are not usually expected or considered in the average humanitarian response: Women gaining mobility and freedom in displacement situations; men discovering how to play with children and changing their views about themselves.
