As part of its10th Anniversary Celebrations and to mark 16 days of Activism Against Gender Violence in Africa, the Centre for Gender Studies and Advocacy (CEGENSA) writes to cordially invite you to a Panel Discussion on the theme: Confronting Domestic Violence in Ghana.

In August, 2014, CEGENSA launched the Evidence and lessons from Latin America (ELLA) Phase 2 Project. The Project is funded by UK Department For International Development (DFID) to enable greater access to Latin American evidence and lessons on Domestic Violence. The key objective of the Project is to enable policymakers, policy influencers and practitioners in African and Latin American countries share lessons and evidence from the two regions to inform policies on domestic violence.

In line with this objective, CEGENSA undertook research and produced two key papers: (1) a Regional Evidence Paper that highlighted women’s experiences and perception of protection services in Ghana and (2) a Comparative Paper that analyzed the passage and implementation of domestic violence laws in Ghana and Mexico.

The Panel Discussion is a dissemination event of the ELLA Project. Panelists will share key lessons learned from the Project and discuss with participants the steps policy actors and influencers can take towards a more comprehensive approach to dealing with domestic violence in Ghana.

Details for the Programme are as follows:

Date: Wednesday, November 30, 2016
