This report concludes Oxfam’s research project on Factors Influencing Misconduct Reporting, which began in 2019–20 by identifying specific barriers in Myanmar, Iraq and Ghana. To test the integration of recommendations from this research, Oxfam then conducted two pilot projects in Iraq and Ghana from May 2021 to September 2022.

Oxfam in Iraq focused on survivors’ perceptions of justice, combating survivor shaming and working with partners to develop reporting mechanisms.

Oxfam in Ghana also worked with partners to conduct a national campaign against gender-based violence, which included a reporting hotline and work to strengthen community awareness.

Lessons learned included the need for integrated programming and flexible funding, the importance of a feminist approach to monitoring, evaluation, accountability and learning, putting survivors at the centre of programming and building decolonial partnerships to ensure that survivors are able to report misconduct.
