BORN TO BE FREE: A REGIONAL STUDY OF INTERVENTIONS TO ENHANCE WOMEN AND GIRLS' SAFETY AND MOBILITY IN PUBLIC SPACES
The Director of the Equality Institute, Dr Emma Fulu, was engaged by the UN Women Asia-Pacific Regional Office to research and produce a report that identifies evidence-based recommendations for constructing the most effective policies, programmes and strategies to enhance women and girls’ safety and mobility in public spaces from selected countries in the Asia-Pacific region.
The study included field visits to Jakarta, Indonesia; Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam; and Seoul, Republic of Korea. A review of 55 evaluated interventions, a survey conducted with over 118 stakeholders working on the issue globally, and over 50 in-depth interviews, identified opportunities, challenges and lessons learned from current practices.
