Shelters and Protection Orders
In the preparation of the Human Rights Council thematic report A/HRC/35/30, the Special Rapporteur on Violence against Women, its Causes and Consequences, Ms. Dubravka Šimonovic, has availed herself of a wealth of information on shelters and protection orders gathered, among others, through previous country visits experience and a call for submission on protection orders and shelters as two ways of prevention and protection of violence against women. On 13 January 2017, in London, the mandate holder also convened, jointly with the Centre for Women, Peace and Security at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE), an Expert Group Meeting on shelters and protection orders.
