Consensus: Combating Gender Based Violence Through Islam, Tradition, and Law

Front Cover
Kachere Series, 2006 - Abused women - 114 pages
The Muslim Association of Malawi, the GTZ Combating Gender Based Violence Project, the Mangochi Network against Gender Based Violence, and the GTZ consultancy unit "Islam and Technical Cooperation in Africa" cooperated to produce this study. It is based on nine public dialogues in Mangochi during 2005. A study at the start of the project found that violence in all its forms - physical or verbal - is regarded within Malawi as an acceptable method of resolving conflict whether within the family, or in hospitals, prisons, schools and between political parties. The objective was to establish an environment where participations would be able to interpret their own rule system towards reaching consensus with the other groups. The contributions are left to speak for themselves, rather than being evaluated.
