Assessment of NGO monitoring on CEDAW implementation in SE Asia by Susan Bazilli ( )
2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The aim of this assessment was originally to review the NGO reports on CEDAW, in seven SEA countries. A questionnaire guiding the research framework and a work plan were agreed upon prior to the assessment mission. After the completion of the mission, UN Women requested that the assessment report comprise more details on monitoring, including the NGOs/CSOs advocacy, coalition building, the formation of CEDAW Watch groups, the preparation of alternative reports, and how they have contributed towards strengthened monitoring and accountability mechanisms for the implementation of CEDAW in the region. The report therefore was to contain less information on the actual alternative reports that the research tool was geared toward

Informal justice systems : charting a course for human rights-based engagement ( )
2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Providing accessible justice is a state obligation under international human rights standards, but this obligation does not require that all justice be provided through formal justice systems. If done in ways to respect and uphold human rights, the provision of justice through informal justice systems is not against human rights standards and can be a mechanism to enhance the fulfilment of human rights obligations by delivering accessible justice to individuals and communities where the formal justice system does not have the capacity or geographical reach. This study seeks to identify how engagement with informal justice systems can build greater respect and protection for human rights. It highlights the considerations that development partners should have when assessing whether to implement programmes involving informal justice systems, the primary consideration being that engagement with the informal justice systems neither directly nor inadvertently reinforces existing societal or structural discrimination - a consideration that applies to working with formal justice systems as well. The study also examines the value of informal justice systems in offering, in certain contexts, flexible structures and processes, cost-effectiveness and outreach to grassroots communities

Why do some men use violence against women and how can we prevent it? : quantitative findings from the UN Multi-country Study on Men and Violence in Asia and the Pacific by Emma Fulu ( )
1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The United Nations Multi-country Study on Men and Violence explores the meaning and causes of men's violence against women - and why some men are more or less likely than other men to abuse women. This report presents findings from the quantitative component of the study. Interviews were conducted with more than 10,000 men and 3,000 women in urban and rural locations in the Asia-Pacific region, including in Bangladesh, Cambodia, China, Indonesia, Sri Lanka and Papua New Guinea, regarding how masculinities relate to men's perceptions and perpetration of gender-based violence; men's use of different forms of violence against women - specifically intimate partner violence and non-partner rape; and men's own experience of violence and how it relates to the perpetration of violence against women. The report concludes with recommendations for violence prevention
