Tools for the Protection of Human Rights - Summaries of Jurisprudence: Gender-based Violence

CEJIL is proud to present a new volume of the collection Summaries of Jurisprudence, this time addressing principles of protection of women against Gender-based Violence.

This compilation of international standards provides a solid jurisprudential research body and it presents a wider panorama of women’s reality in very different contexts revealing the indisputable persistence of gender-based violence in the world, in spite of the advances in the normative field. The selected cases are some of the most paradigmatic ones among those which, to date, have motivated some type of response from human rights protection systems.

We hope that it will be a useful tool which contributes to the defense of human rights and to the eradication of violence against women, one of the more tolerated and silenced human rights violations.
