Violence against women: Nobel Peace Prize is a start - but legal backing is long overdue

14.11.2018 / Created by (EMWF)

In this article, Daniela Nadj reflects on the decision to award the 2018 Nobel Peace Prize to two campaigners against sexual violence against women in conflict, Nadia Murad and Denis Mukwege, and how this presents an international recognition of the severity of this problem in an increasingly conflict-ridden world.

Nadj also highlights the persistent moral gap between rhetoric and practice when it comes to addressing gender-based violence, while insisting on the urgent need for drafting and putting into effect a binding convention for the prohibition of violence against women.
