Legislation seeking to address violence against women has grown in recent years – at least 144 countries now have laws on domestic violence (DV). However, many women are still prevented or deterred from accessing justice. The ESRC-DFID Joint Fund for Poverty Alleviation Research on DV law in Cambodia not only contributed to greater understanding of the limitations of the legislation but was used as evidence in a law court.
Gender cuts across all the themes, with resources on issues such as maternal health, education, social norms, power, rights, and employment.
The ‘Power of Partnership: Research to Alleviate Poverty’ conference recently took place in Delhi, India from 3-5 December.
The event focused on the ESRC-DFID Joint Fund for Poverty Alleviation Research as it approaches its final phase.
There is a growing body of evidence that health contributes to individual wellbeing, household stability, and national development.
