ESCWA Centre for Women organized a Gender Discussion Series on 30 November 2018, at the UN House in Beirut, to present the first draft of the study titled “Beyond Boundaries: Utilizing Protection Orders to Cultivate a Holistic Response to Marital Violence in the Arab Region”. This study aims to shed light on legislation at the state level that provides for protection orders, utilizing data from the region, and to advocate for action to ensure that protection orders are part of a larger coordinated response to marital violence that not only meets international standards, but also is part of a larger socio-legal response that is survivor centred.

The meeting brought together a group of regional and international experts who discussed and validated the draft study, and brought forward a set of policy recommendations for member states and stakeholders.
