About the book

This Guide highlights the often-shocking examples of VAWE around the world, and showcases the innovative prevention and response measures being tested. It is intended for those best positioned to act to prevent and mitigate VAWE, including international organizations and those providing programming support on electoral assistance, women’s political participation, human rights monitoring and ending violence against women. It will also be a resource for members of political parties, particularly the leadership of those parties, electoral management bodies, civil society organizations, women’s groups and gender equality activists. Ending violence against women in elections is a responsibility shared by all actors at all levels across the political and electoral spectrum and will bring rewards for all.
