The workshop, “Gender-Based Violence (GBV) in the MENA Region” will explore GBV in Middle Eastern communities from a comparative perspective. Workshop participants, scholars who have contributed significantly to the knowledge base on GBV in Middle Eastern communities, will share their knowledge of the magnitude of, and attitudes towards, GBV and its social, economic and health consequences in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region. The workshop will also be a forum to communicate examples of effective interventions and policies to prevent GBV, identifying constructive steps to overcome current gaps in knowledge and barriers to reform. Proceedings from the workshop will contribute to the existing literature on the topic through inclusion in the Mediterranean Programme RSCAS-EUI Working Papers series as well as through inclusion in an edited volume on GBV in the region -- a proposed output of the workshop selection and presentation process.
