Special Rapporteur on VAW: Violence against women as a barrier to citizenship rights
UN Special Rapporteur on violence against women, its causes and consequences
The present report focuses on violence against women as a barrier to the realization of women’s civil, political, economic, social, cultural and developmental rights and the effective exercise of citizenship rights. The report also provides an analysis of continued challenges in the quest for the elimination of violence against women. This analysis is underpinned by the work of the mandate holder, including the preparation of thematic reports and participation in country missions and conferences and meetings.
