Description

The study is a review of primary and secondary information obtained through surveys, a literature review and internet search of policies and programs which address the prevention of violence against women in APEC economies. The study aims to describe and systematize those experiences, with a focus on IPV and the costs of this violence. Interventions undertaken by companies individually, in consortia, or in conjunction with other private or public-sector actors received additional attention in pursuing best practices to share with APEC economies.
