Guidelines for The Reintegration of Women Survivors of Violence in Palestine

The issue of the reintegration of women and girls victims/survivors of violence into their community and society is one of the most challenging issues in the Palestinian society. This is due to the local culture that is based on the norms of shame and honor associated with women and girls, and its impact on the honor of the family, whether nuclear or extended. The identity of an individual in Palestine, which is determined on the basis of belonging and loyalty to the family, contributes to imposing further social restrictions on women and girls.
 
This manual, which is closely associated with the Palestinian Referral System, is an illustrative and guiding tool for staff and workers to lead the reintegration process of women and girls victims/survivors back into the community. The roles and duties of the different partners are based on the referral mechanisms adopted in the Referral System document. Therefore, the Palestinian Referral System is an essential document complement to the reintegration guidelines.
