Improving the Lives of Women Survivors in Timor-Leste

Thursday, February 6, 2020

The research report provides an insight into the lives of 77 women survivors across three municipalities, Baucau, Covalima and Ouecusse; and shows results from Participatory Action Research (PAR) that many women survivors remain vulnerable because of existing inequalities, such as limited access to social assistance, information, and their rights, which then restricts their ability to meet their needs and escape conditions of economic vulnerability. To address these issues, ACbit concludes with five recommendations to present to the Government, civil society groups and the community in 2020.

Access to Criminal Justice by Women Subjected to Violence in Viet Nam Women’s Justice Perception Study Research Report
