The Struggle for Freedom from Fear

Chapter 3 chronicles the international repertoire that has grown to respond to gender violence. We will trace the growth, rationale, and mechanisms of the regime. Global standards and programs, regional organizations, foreign aid and diplomacy, and cross-cutting development and health linkages have raised consciousness, empowered advocacy, diffused law, fostered policy, and built capacity to contest violence. We will see how global action against gender violence has evolved from humanitarian protection to human rights to broad connections with multiple facets of human security and development. This chapter will track global institutions, foreign policy, and transnational advocacy—and plant the need for local response.

Keywords:   human rights, gender violence, international organizations, United Nations, foreign policy
