Why are so many democratic states engulfed by violence? If the problem is poverty, why does homicide disproportionately afflict middle-income countries? If governments are so weak, why do countries otherwise able to deliver for their citizens find themselves unable to deliver on safety?
This panel seeks to explore how the law and justice community are working on prevention of violence against women and the range of activities that this covers, including beyond what might be thought of as the conventional bounds of law and justice assistance.
Members are invited to attend an evening in conversation with Mark Bishop MBE (Counsellor, Law Enforcement, UK National Crime Agency), with additional commentary from Karen Moore (Assistant Secretary, International Legal Assistance, Attorney-General's Department).
Light refreshments will be served at the conclusion of the discussion.
This pilot workshop offers participants a high-level networking space to take stock of some foundational questions about our current approaches to law and justice.
