2013 PHRGE Institute "Human Rights and Violence Against Women: Applying the Due Diligence Principle"

November 7 & 8, Northeastern University School of Law

The 2013 PHRGE Institute, the eighth in the Institute series, convened over 100 academics, advocates and practitioners engaged in the effort to end violence against women. Co-convened by PHRGE, The Due Diligence Project (DDP) and the Domestic Violence Institute (DVI), the Institute explored the ways in which the international human rights framework might contribute to advocacy efforts against gender-based violence, especially those taking place in the Northeast region of the United States. The exploration was based on presentation and analysis of the experience of the DDP, an international consultation regarding the ways in which various governments are responding to their obligations to stop violence against women.

Sponsored by the Due Diligence Project, The Domestic Violence Institute and the Program on Human Rights and the Global Economy.
