Tracking Cases of Gender base Violence in Nepal 2013

Back to top

This report presents the results of a survey of individual, institutional, legal and policy responses to experiences of violence against women and girls (VAWG) in Nepal. Through a detailed understanding of the experiences of 6 women who have suffered violence, we have reviewed how and where women seek care and support, and explored reasons for not seeking care. We have reviewed the mechanisms for institutional accountability, collaboration and co-ordination, and have engaged with multiple stakeholders to understand the barriers and opportunities for improving institutional responses. In addition, we have looked in detail at the legal and policy environments which, in theory, both protect and promote the rights of women and girls to live a life free of violence, and ensure they have a right to care and support when needed.
