Sexual and Gender Based Violence (SGBV) affects women and girls disproportionately and wreaks negative impacts on their effective participation in the workforce, which is actually hampering economic growth of the victims as well as the country. In this scenario, compensation should be provided to SGBV survivors as reparation to foster their economic conditions. But ensuring compensation to all the SGBV survivors is still very critical in Bangladesh and therefore steps should be taken to strengthen the legal framework for compensation for survivors of rape and other forms of SGBV in Bangladesh. In this light, OXFAM undertook a scope study titled “Compensation for Survivors of Sexual and Gender Based Violence: A Scope Study” with an aim to review and present the existing compensation mechanisms for the SGBV survivors in Bangladesh, explore the limitations and challenges of these mechanism, identify the scope of private and public sector involvement and to propose recommendation for policy advocacy based on the best practices around the world. dRi, on behalf of OXFAM administered 512 Surveys, 8 FGDs, 8 IDIs, 24 KIIs across Tangail, Faridpur, Pabna, Bogra, Rangpur, Dinajpur, Jamalpur, Netrokona to conduct the scope the study.
