The Guide "Preventing Violence against Women in Elections”
Dec 13, 2017
The Guide “Preventing Violence against Women in Elections” seeks to provide assistance to those working to increase the participation of women in electoral processes and mitigate the prevalence of VAWE. It seeks to identify the specific components of VAWE, including types, tactics, victims and perpetrators, and offers various options to prevent and mitigate it based on current good practices. The Guide presents some existing practices and options for policy and programming responses that may support technical assistance providers such as UNDP, UN Women and other UN agencies in their work.
