States to enforce its VAW systems

July 31, 2013 at 2:04 PM

Ms Rashida Manjoo the Special Rapporteur on Violence against Women reminds states that they are accountable for investigating and preventing violence against women.

“The State has an obligation to investigate all acts of violence against women, including systemic failures to prevent violence against women,” said Special Rapporteur on Violence against women, Rashida Manjoo.

“There is a need to create a framework for discussing the responsibility of States to act with due diligence,” she said

Her mandate includes appeals and communications to states regarding alleged cases of violence against women, to undertake fact finding visits to member countries and to report every year on these to the UN High Commission for Human Rights office.
