Kenyan lawyers are seeking to develop a test case to establish a broad ambit for positive obligations to protect women from gender-based violence.

Helen Mountfield QC, Anna Bugden, Monica Arino, Elsa Groumelle and Cathryn Hopkins of the Lawyers Circle worked with Equality Now to undertake a legal survey concerning gender-based violence. The research evaluated the relevant instruments and the most significant case law from the United Nations, the Inter-American Court, Africa and the Council of Europe in order to identify, summarise and provide links to potentially useful materials for the Kenyan Lawyers to use.
