About this Episode

We chatted with Dr. Peace Medie about her latest book: Global Norms and Local Action: the campaigns to end violence against women in Africa. We discuss the importance of specialised mechanisms for handling Gender Based Violence crimes, the role of African culture and cultural actors in countering violence against women, and why domestic actors are crucial partners for international organisations hoping to institutionalise women’s rights. Dr. Medie’s responses are woven with powerful stories and sensitive nuance, making this longer-than-normal podcast, well worth a listen.
