COFEM SVRI 2017 Paper & Video Series

What is the COFEM SVRI Paper and Video Series?

The Feminist Perspectives on Addressing Violence Against Women and Girls is a collection of papers written by COFEM members to articulate concerns about the shrinking space for feminist analysis in GBV efforts in development and humanitarian settings, and action needed to address those concerns.  To accompany the paper series, COFEM released a series of video interviews with its members that provides a snapshot of the key issues discussed in each paper.

The series was launched at the 5th SVRI Research Forum in September 2017.
