"This study aims to examine the phenomenon of domestic violence against women and girls in the Arab region. It analyses domestic violence against women and girls from various facets, namely, socio-cultural and legal; and looks into its economic impact and cost. The study examines measures taken by Arab countries in combating violence and sheds light on the role of civil society organizations in addressing this problem at both national and regional levels. The study generates evidence-based policy recommendations addressed to Arab States to scale up their commitment to combat violence against female population groups, particularly in the domestic sphere, in order to promote gender equality and women's empowerment in Arab societies."--Publisher's descripton
Assessment of NGO monitoring on CEDAW implementation in SE Asia by Susan Bazilli( )
3 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 26 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 ( )
1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 4 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
