Annie Devenish, Cyrus Afshar

In this brief, we look at three countries, Indonesia, New Zealand and South Africa, that have responded to the shadow pandemic of gender-based violence at home and in the workplace in timely and innovative ways, exploring which elements of their approach could offer best practice lessons for other countries, and where they have fallen short. We also touch on a number of other smaller measures from other countries that have to address the issue of gender-based violence amid the pandemic.
