Preventing and Addressing Sexual and Gender-Based Violence in Places of Deprivation of Liberty
This publication provides examples from around the OSCE region that show how states can address and prevent sexual and gender-based violence in places of deprivation of liberty, while upholding human rights and integrating a gender perspective. It also provides case-law examples illustrating milestones in jurisprudence on the topic. In addition to an account of landmark court decisions, international instruments, national practices and academic studies, this publication is based on research collected over two years involving practitioners from criminal justice systems and civil society organizations throughout the region. Overall, the publication aims to raise awareness about sexual and gender-based violence in criminal justice facilities and about victims’ needs, while proposing a range of safeguards that can be put in place to effectively prevent such violence.
Gender, Diversity and Justice
This paper offers analysis and recommendations for building a more inclusive justice system, drawing on results of a needs assessment study carried out by ODIHR in 2017. The study, which relied on both desk-based research and the collection of field data, was structured around two separate but interlinked themes: a) gender and diversity among justice system actors, in terms of recruitment and selection of a diverse workforce and ensuring workplace equality; and b) the effects of gender and diversity among justice system actors on the fairness of outcomes, as perceived by end users of justice systems. This paper outlines specific challenges identified by the needs assessment study and highlights some of the good practice solutions used to address them.
