Violence Against Women
I have been involved in a series of projects on violence against women and minorities, including a series of projects and papers on measuring this violence for the UN, especially the United Nations Division for the Advancement of Women and the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe, and the UK Home Office and Women and Equality Unit. Downloads of work which pre-dates the UNESCO Chair are available on my personal web-site.
The Cost of Domestic Violence, up-dated 2009, for the Attorney General and the Corporate Alliance Against Domestic Violence
The Cost of Domestic Violence: Up-Dates 2009 reviews and up-dates the cost of domestic violence from the original 2004 report for the Women and Equality Unit The Cost of Domestic Violence. The new report was produced at the request of the then Attorney General, Baroness Patricia Scotland, and published to coincide with the re-launch of the Corporate Alliance Against Domestic Violence on 30 November 2009.
The report shows that there has been some reduction in the extent and cost of domestic violence over the last decade. The reduction in cost to business and society appears to result at least partly from the development of services in the public and third sectors.
Analysing challenges to the Criminal Justice System in addressing multiple inequalities in physical and legal security, for the Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC)
This project is analysing inequalities in the criminal justice system in relation to physical security, including gender-based violence and hate crime, and legal security, in the ways these are addressed by the Criminal Justice System (CJS).
The work entails an investigation on the way physical and legal security for equality groups is measured within the (CJS) and proposes recommendations to improve this in line with the new duty on public bodies to promote equality.
The report contributes to the Triennial Review of equalities in Britain by the EHRC, which will regularly map the equality landscape so as to establish the nature of any changes.
The final report for this project funded by the Equality and Human Rights Commission will be available in September 2010.
