Sakharov Prize 2014: Tending the scars of sexual violence in DRC

20-11-2014

Dr Denis Mukwege, a 59-year-old gynaecologist from the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) has won the 2014 Sakharov Prize. The attribution of Europe's top human rights prize is recognition for Dr Mukwege's perseverance and courage in his efforts to help rape survivors over the past 16 years. A fervent advocate of women's rights, he has received many international awards, but has also became the target of death threats, and even an assassination attempt in 2012.

The award of the Sakharov Prize to Dr Denis Mukwege, a Congolese gynaecologist and women's rights activist, has again drawn international attention to the desperate plight of women who, according to Dr Mukwege, have become a 'battlefield' in this chronic and thus sometimes forgotten crisis.

National Experiences in Applying Civil Protection Measures : The Case of Spain

15-03-2012

In this document, we describe the activity of Fundación ANAR (Ayuda a Niños y Adolescentes en Riesgo, or Help for Children and Adolescents at Risk) and, in particular, the ANAR Help lines, which were launched in 1994. We then reflect how Spanish law regulates the protection order for victims of crime and, finally, we provide a number of contributions that, in our experience in child protection, we believe important to consider in the study and drafting of recent legislative proposals from the European ...
