Beschreibung

This very insightful volume critically analyses the law and law enforcement in three South Asian countries India, Pakistan and Sri Lanka in order to assess the response of the criminal justice system to violence against women. The contributors assert that the gap between reality and the practice of laws in these countries is unfortunately very wide and women who are victims of violence are further victimised by discriminatory laws, the apathy of the judicial system, and the systematic manipulation of legal provisions. They explore the opportunities to change the legal systems and make them more responsive to women's human right to justice and freedom from violence.
