The need to stop rape is pressing. Since it is the outcome of a wide range of practices and institutions in society, so too must be the policies 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, and 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. It 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.
