Detailed description of project Back
South Africa has a number of laws and policies in place to address violence against women and children (VAWC). However, the expressed intentions captured within these legal instruments consistently fail to materialize into practices that facilitate access to justice for those affected.
The global objective of this study is to provide an in-depth understanding of why the system of the South African government has inadequately responded to the core service needs of women and children victims of violence.
The specific objective of the assignment is to contribute to the implementation of the Improvement Plan5 by the Inter-Ministerial Technical Task Team for Violence Against Women and Children through the mapping of existing services offered by all government departments to women and children victims of violence.
The expected results are that a comprehensive package of services responsive to the needs of women and children in all their diversity is defined and positioned to inform, in particular, the ways in which government’s response to victims of violence can be improved.
