Adolescent Boys and Young Men: Engaging Them as Supporters of Gender Equality and Health and Understanding their Vulnerabilities. Kato-Wallace J, Barker G, Sharafi L, Mora L and Lauro G. (2016)

immage

Adolescence is a key period where individuals of all gender identities form attitudes, opinions and beliefs – about themselves, about their sexuality and about their place in the world. It is a period when ideas about equality can become ingrained. The study emphasizes that a holistic approach to advancing gender equality and sexual and reproductive health must include both adolescent girls and boys. It highlights the need to engage adolescent boys and young men as allies to achieve gender equality and as supporters of women’s empowerment, as well as the importance of addressing the specific health and social development needs of boys themselves.

Born to Be Free: A Regional Study of Interventions to Enhance Women and Girls Safety and Mobility in Public Spaces, Asia and the Pacific Region. Fulu E. (2016)

immage

The review included 55 evaluated interventions, a survey of over 118 stakeholders working on the issue globally, over 50 in-depth interviews and field visits to Jakarta, Indonesia; Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City, Viet Nam; and Seoul, Republic of Korea. The review found that there is an inconsistent understanding of the root causes of VAWG in public spaces. There is often a failure to see violence against women in the urban public space as part of a larger continuum of violence against women and girls, which limits cross-cutting and holistic solutions in addressing the causes of sexual violence. Nevertheless, there are certain promising approaches. The highly participatory and explicitly feminist interventions from the global UN Women Safe Cities programme, among others, show great promise in their inclusion of women from the community to take up leadership roles in the safe cities movement.

Ethical and Safety Recommendations for Intervention Research on Violence against Women. WHO. (2016)

immage

The publication of the World Health Organization (WHO) recommendations 'Putting women first: ethical and safety recommendations for research on domestic violence against women' provided researchers with a set of concrete actions and best practices for conducting survey research on violence against women (VAW) in a manner that was both ethical and safe. These recommendations have spawned additional publications highlighting ethical concerns in different aspects of research on VAW. Most recently, additional guidelines have been released focusing on general recommendations for conducting research on VAW, on primary prevention initiatives, on sexual violence in emergency settings, with perpetrators of sexual violence, and on violence against children. The recommendations and guidance have been useful for researchers and practitioners in the context of cross-sectional descriptive research.

Human Trafficking Vulnerabilities in Asia: A Study on Forced Marriage between Cambodia and China. UN-ACT. (2016)

immage

This report examines patterns of forced marriage in the context of broader migratory flows between Cambodia and China. It primarily draws on the accounts of 42 Cambodian women who experienced conditions of forced marriage, with interviews having taken place in both countries. Key informants from government and non-government stakeholders in Cambodia and China were consulted as well.

The objective has been to analyze recruitment, brokering, transportation and exploitation patterns as well as the links between these; to determine service needs amongst Cambodians trafficked to China for forced marriage, in China, during the repatriation process and upon return to Cambodia; as well as to identify opportunities for interventions to prevent forced marriages from occurring and to extend protective services to those in need, at both policy and programming levels.
