Intersections of violence against women and girls with state-building and peace-building: Lessons from Nepal, Sierra Leone and South Sudan (Policy Brief) 

As part of the What Works to Prevent Violence Against Women and Girls program, funded by the UK Department for International Development, this policy brief draws on three case countries – Nepal, Sierra Leone and South Sudan – to address gaps in evidence and understanding on violence against women and girls during post-conflict transition. In doing so, it aims to increase recognition of the potential for state-building and peace-building processes to more effectively institutionalize approaches to violence against women and girls, and the role that addressing such violence can play in advancing sustainable peace.

It explores the critical relationship between SBPB and VAWG: both the way SBPB strategies may affect VAWG, and the possibility that VAWG may contribute to continued conflict and fragility.
