TrackGBV: Transparency, Consistency, Accountability

 

In the fight against gender-based violence (GBV) it is imperative to increase transparency, consistency, and accountability within the justice system. Based on our analysis, sentences are reduced in over 52% of GBV cases in the Pacific region because of gender stereotypes and cultural norms. ICAAD is providing the tools and data to empower judges and advocates to better protect women and girls.

The TrackGBV program is:

  • Promoting legal reform by providing actionable GBV data to local advocates;
  • Influencing judicial attitudes and behaviors through rule of law trainings;
  • Partnering with Chief Justices to increase transparency in court systems;
  • Training women’s rights organizations regionally;
  • Teaching a human rights course on gender bias in the judiciary to law students;
  • Building a scholarship fund for local women to attend law school.
