Within this, the two key areas of focus are primary prevention (stopping violence before it starts) and multisectoral services and responses to victims/survivors.
Through these discussions, CSOs and other experts from the field of gender-based violence can answer questions, and share experiences and best practices.
CSW is an opportunity for Member States to discuss areas of concern for women and girls, and agree on approaches to address these issues. UN Women needs input from CSOs and practitioners on the ground to ensure that the discussions will be informed by high quality materials and reports, which:
-Highlight the most effective responses, with strong evidence;
- Identify the gaps and challenges in achieving the most effective responses;
- Demonstrate the need to prevent violence before it starts.
The discussion outcomes will be used to inform the findings and recommendations in the Secretary-General’s two reports, provided to CSW members to guide them in their discussions.
They will also be included in a report for the general public on the official CSW 57 website; and will feed into an Expert Group Meeting on prevention (Bangkok, 17-20 September 2012) which will also present its outcomes to CSW.
