Vital Voices – Justice Institute on Gender Based Violence

The Belfast Area Domestic & Sexual Violence Partnership (BDSVP) worked with the Vital Voices Global Partnership to deliver the Justice Institute on Gender-Based Violence. The Institute was the 18th Justice Institute and the first in the UK. The BDSVP worked closely with the team from Vital Voices to bring together diverse practitioners across the criminal justice system, with the aim of strengthening their ability to investigate, prosecute and provide services for victims of gender-based violence crimes.

The Institute saw over 45 multidisciplinary participants including judges, prosecutors, solicitors, police officers, government officials and service providers coming together to identify challenges and outline strategies to collaboratively tackle the issue of gender based violence in Northern Ireland.
