Abstract

Readers will already be aware that support services for victims of GBV are overstretched and, in many remote areas, are inaccessible. Articles in previous editions have already made the convincing case to increase both the accountability and spending for GBV across all government ministries. However, it is not only in victim support where geographical variations exist. Victims of GBV may go through contrasting experiences for several reasons, such as: the distance from their homes to a police station / court; the way GBV is approached in their local community / culture and; whether they report the crime to the Criminal Justice System (CJS) or Traditional Justice System (TJS), if indeed they do report it.
