The need to stop rape is pressing and, since it is the outcome of a wide range of practices and institutions in society,
so too must the policies be to stop it This important book offers a comprehensive guide to the international
policies developed to stop rape , together with case study examples on how they work. The book engages with the
law and criminal justice system, health services, specialised services for victim-survivors, educational and cultural
interventions, as well as how they can best be coordinated. It is informed by theory and evidence drawn from
scholarship and practice from around the world.
The book will be of interest to a global readership of students, practitioners and policy makers as well as anyone
who wants to know how rape can be stopped.
