The Arab Institute for Women

Thematic Areas

Preventing Gender-Based Violence

Violence against women in the Arab region is present in all its forms. AiW works both independently and with partners to prevent and respond to this violence and to build an enabling social and legal environment to end this abuse.

Intimate partner violence is the most prevalent form in the region. AiW also works to address child marriage, trafficking and sexual exploitation, sexual violence, and other forms through education, research, policy papers, film screenings, and training guides. We create and lead capacity building trainings for GBV practitioners, media professionals, and security actors – amongst others. AiW also works to galvanize youth through art for activism and other engaging activities to ignite young activists.
