The Constitution obliges the State to respect, protect and promote the rights of women to be free from sexual and domestic violence. It also mandates parliament to scrutinise and oversee executive action in this regard. To examine both how government has fared in meeting its constitutional obligations, as well as how parliament’s oversight role can be strengthened, the Tshwaranang Legal Advocacy Centre, the Heinrich Böll Foundation and the Community Law Centre Parliamentary Programme invite you to the following seminar:
“The Right and the Real: A Shadow Report Analysing Selected Government Departments’ Implementation of the 1998 Domestic Violence Act and 2007 Sexual Offences Act”
This report examines how five departments – Justice and Constitutional Development, Police, Health, Social Development and Correctional Services – have gone about implementing the Domestic Violence Act and Sexual Offences Act and includes review of their budgets, annual reports and strategic plans.
