UNODC Consultancy - Quick Reference Guide on Gender Responsive, Non-Custodial Measures for Women in Conflict with the Law in South Africa
The purpose of the assignment is to draft a SA Quick Reference Guide on Gender Responsive Non-custodial measures for WICL, based on the adaptation of the UNODC Toolkit on gender-responsive, non-custodial measures. Of note, is that dimensions of GBV or its severity is not always considered in services to WICL. This assignment also considers the intersectionality between GBV and WICL.
