Våld mot Kvinnor i Palestina och Möjligheter till Skydd

Prepared jointly by Lifos and Landinfo to Palestine – in cooperation with Migrationsverket in Sweden – this report outlines the situation for women in Palestine with regards to domestic violence, sexual violence, honor-related violence, and early and forced marriage.

Lifos presents a series of conclusions on the root causes to gender-based violence in Palestine, which it finds to lie in the patriarchal norms and behaviors that legitimize the power of men’s rights to discipline women who break social norms. The report continues by outlining the formal and informal mechanisms in place in Palestine to protect women affected by gender-based violence.
