International Approaches to Rape PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

International Approaches to Rape free pdf This book gives an overview of the socio-legal and political approaches taken in relation to rape across nine countries worldwide. It is written at a time in which many governments have begun to take rape more seriously than in the past and have started to implement wide-ranging reforms. This is, therefore, an ideal time to describe such reforms and assess the degree to which they have been progressive. By introducing readers to national perspectives of issues relating to rape, the book presents a comparative approach that highlights the similarities and differences between countries, contexts, laws, key issues, policies and interventions. It is recommended for academics, students, practitioners and policy makers. Also available by the same editors is 'International Approaches to Prostitution' (The Policy Press, 2006).
