Our work with women and children

Women and children face particular challenges in relation to security and justice. They are disproportionately affected in conflict and post-conflict situations, where they face high risks of sexual violence and other forms of abuse. In many countries security and justice providers, for example armed forces and the police fail in their duty to protect victims of gender based violence and at times are perpetrators of such violence. In conflict, post-conflict and fragile states, the provision of security and justice is often very weak, leaving women and victims of gender based violence even more vulnerable.

Civil justice issues - in particular land and other property rights, inheritance and family law - can also have a major impact on women's lives. We have undertaken pioneering work on legal barriers to women's economic empowerment, with in-depth work in East and West Africa and the Pacific.Examples of our work include:

  • Conducting a study for the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD)'s gender team, to better understand how legislation and the way it is applied affects womens access to credit and their economic empowerment in Morocco and the Kyrgyz Republic (EBRD, 2013)
  • Providing governance advice to DFID Ethiopias End Child Marriage Programme, including the development of a full budgeted capacity building plan to improve partner organisations and ministries capacity to implement the programme, with a particular focus on a co-ordinated approach between womens affairs, education, health and justice. Work included review of governance at federal and regional state level, for Government of Ethiopia agencies tasked with protecting girls from forced early marriage; and design of project interventions to strengthen these agencies (DFID, 2012).
  • Conducting a comprehensive assessment of the needs and wants of women, the poor and vulnerable in relation to accessing police and justice services in Yemen, and the capability of the police and justice services to respond in their services provisions (DFID, 2011).

Rolex COSC Chronometer certifies each of these rolex replica uk watches (as they do with most of their watches) and it has proven to be highly accurate and reliable (for a mechanical watch, of course). If I had to replica watches sale have a complaint about the Rolex Submariner 114060, it would be about the coating over the sapphire crystal. Rolex puts anti-reflective (AR) coating on the bottom of the crystal only, and not the rolex replica uk top. That means that there is glare; but not too much since it is flat crystal. I like the idea of having so much AR coating on a sapphire crystal rolex replica that it looks invisible and that you can stick your hublot replica sale finger right onto the dial. I am not sure why rolex replica uk does not use AR coating on the top of the crystal, but I am sure they have a good reason. I have have two hypothesized reasons why they don't. First is because AR coating can hublot replica uk wear off and Rolex doesn't like for their watches to have areas that are too susceptible to wear.
