GBV & Norm and Policy Implementation
This is a study of states’ responses to gender-based violence. Medie’s book, “Global Norms and Local Action: The Campaigns to End Violence against Women in Africa” examines the factors that shape states’ implementation of international gender-based violence norms in Liberia and CÔte d’Ivoire. It draws on over 300 interviews with a range of individuals, including law enforcement officers and survivors of violence, to probe the factors that affect norm implementation at the street-level, with a focus on the roles of international organizations and women’s movements.
