In response to the growing challenges of Violence Against Women and Girls, the Government published a national strategy entitled Ending Violence against Women and Girls: Strategy 2016 – 2020, to challenge traditional harmful practices and increase reporting by 2020. Despite the significant policy progress that has been made, critiques have been made regarding their impact. Recent statistics show that while an increasing number of reports end in convictions, the volume of reports to the police has stayed stagnant (CPS 2017). In view of these persistent challenges, this symposium will offer local authorities, police officers, women’s rights organisation and other key stakeholders with a timely and invaluable opportunity to share knowledge and best practice to collectively strengthen our response to VAWG.
