Bettinger-Lopez & Ezer on Law Enforcement Responses to Gender-Based Violence

Caroline Bettinger-Lopez and Tamar Ezer (University of Miami - School of Law and Yale University - Solomon Center for Health Law and Policy) have posted Improving Law Enforcement Responses to Gender-Based Violence: Domestic And International Perspectives (Chapter 20) (In Handbook of Policing, Society, and Communication (ed. Howie Giles, Edward Maguire, and Shawn Hill), Rowman and Littlefield (Forthcoming)) on SSRN. Here is the abstract:
Gender-based violence (GBV) is a pandemic that is globally ubiquitous, despite decades of efforts to address it through public health, criminal justice, education, and social welfare sectors (Smith 2017). GBV refers to harms inflicted on women, girls, and LGBT/gender-non-conforming individuals disproportionately or due to prevailing gender norms (see Chapters 7 & 8). It includes intimate partner violence, sexual assault, and stalking and encompasses “physical, sexual, psychological or economic harm or suffering …, threats of such acts, harassment, coercion and arbitrary deprivation of liberty” (CEDAW 2017, 5).
