Contemporary Forms of Enslavement of Women & Girls
FEMICIDE has become an important resource book for international institutions, scholars and practitioners. International organisations, NGOs and independent researchers have come together to help produce this awareness-raising publication on contemporary forms of slavery, which touches upon many important and, sadly, overlooked issues.
The first part of this Volume gives an overview of past actions to eliminate violence against women and what needs to be done in the future. There then follows a collection of reports and articles on modern-day enslavement of women and girls, a practice that is still commonplace in too many parts of this world.
The report provides a review of the ACUNS Vienna Liaison Office symposium on “Ending Impunity for Gender-related Killing of Women and Girls – State Responsibility and Accountability”, which took place in May 2018.
