INTRODUCTIONBackgroundIn the past decade, the relationship between gender-based violence (GBV) and armed conflicts has received much international attention. The impact and implications of violence against women have led to numerous attempts to address accountability and impunity issues through processes that include access to justice mechanisms. Despite efforts to address issues of GBV in conflict and post-conflict areas and to raise awareness of these issues, GBV continues to be a major problem. In many conflict settings throughout the world, women continue to experience gender-targeted violence, such as rape, sexual slavery, and a host of other human rights abuses, as part of military campaigns and as a result of the breakdown of community norms which tend to accompany armed conflicts. They experience violence at the hands of government actors, non-state militaries (including rebel forces and dissidents), community members, and even, tragically, the peacekeeping forces that are sent to protect them and restore order. Furthermore, women remain vulnerable to violence following an armed conflict, as research indicates a strong rise in domestic violence, sex trafficking, and forced prostitution in post-conflict areas. In addition, the needs of women who are victims of GBV are either overlooked or inadequately addressed by transitional justice mechanisms, including truth commissions, war crimes hearings, and reparation schemes. This Article aims to provide a brief overview of GBV in conflict and post-conflict settings, with a particular focus on recent international standard-setting developments and the continuing challenges of impunity and inadequate services for GBV victims.
Research ProblemThere is a violence against woman and children and they are being abused every day other are killed and other are survivors through this violence.
Research QuestionsWhat is gender based violence?
What causes gender based violence?
What are the effects of gender based violence?
Types of gender based violence?
What can be done to prevent gender based violence?
What are the consequences that the perpetrator will face?
What are the sign of gender based violence?
Challenges that are faced by victims of gender based violence?
Research ObjectivesTo know what is gender based violence.
What are consequences, causes, effects, sign and types of gender based violence
To empower both victims and perpetrators of gender based violence to take control of their lives and actions.
To educate and empower members of the community to recognize and take responsibility for gender based violence.
To challenge and redefine the cultural, social, political and economic factors underlying violence against women.
Significance of StudyThe purpose of this study is understand the other people’s views about their understanding about gender based violence and what can be done to prevent it from happening. The outcomes would likewise improve arrangement intercessions that would fortify genuine requirement with respect to the police and usage with respect to the legal of the effectively existing violence. This would guarantee that a significant number of the detailed cases are arraigned and guilty parties are indicted or on the other hand elective measures are made in this way guaranteeing equity for the casualty. The data produced from the investigation would likewise add to the officially existing collection of learning.
LITERATURE REVIEWGBV can be physical, sexual, emotional, financial or structural, and can be perpetrated by intimate partners, acquaintances, strangers and institutions. Most acts of interpersonal gender-based violence are committed by men against women, and the man perpetrating the violence is often known by the woman, such as a partner or family member World Health Organization, 2005.
On average, one in five South African women older than 18 have experienced physical violence, but the picture of gender-based attacks varies according to marital status and wealth. Four in 10 divorced or separated women reported physical violence, as has one in three women in the poorest households. It’s a complex picture that emerges in Statistics SA’s 2016 Demographic and Health Survey released on Monday. And it is one that not only challenges societal attitudes of patriarchy and chauvinism, but also the effectiveness of government programmers and interventions MARIANNE MERTEN, 2017
METHODOLOGYCollection of dataA survey will be conducted throughout the research to determine whether the crisis intervention workshop is effective. Design elements such as qualitative and quantitative research will be used to get the required results from the questionnaire. Surveys depend on response rate and a low response rate can lead to concluding invalid results about the population.
Selection of casesThe whole population of the victims that are involved in the programme are in the interest of the project. Since the focus of this research is to have a better understanding of how crisis intervention workshop are impacted by the programme. The entire population will be included to the survey due to the sample because a bigger sample size tends to yield better results. The organisation that will take part in survey is the Crisis Intervention.
Limitations of the studyThere are 60 registered trainers in the organisation. I will only be able to survey the trainers who will be attending the workshop during the workshop days that will take place for two days. Since there are many types of violence we will be focusing to maybe three to four of them like Domestic violence, Physical violence, Emotional violence, Sexual violence
INSTRUMENTS AND TECHNIQUES
The use of the following instruments and techniques are to be anticipated at this stage of the research.
2) Questionnaire design
Questions in the questionnaire will be self-administered because some trainers might not understand the questions clearly. An appendix page with the questions that will be used during the survey shall be attached to the document.
The work integrated learning must be completed in 6 months by November 2016. The project is divided into 3 main different categories precisely:
Project proposal: which is must be completed within 2 months and the past weeks 2 have been used for editing in order to minimize errors as much as possible.
Project report: the report has been completed in 3 months. Under this rubric, a certain amount of explanation will be given in the findings and interpretations. Until the end of November 2018.
