Keynote Abstract: In some countries, governmental authorities have done little to prevent or punish violence against women. Examples of gender-based violence include not only intimate partner violence, but also rape as a weapon of war, civilian rape, and killing condoned in so-called "honor cultures."

Who has the responsibility to respond to human rights violations?
