This blog explores the ways that GBV interventions can be affected by the continuum of violence framework. They state that the causes, links, and complexity of GBV in both 'war' and 'peace' can be examined using the continuum of violence framework. They further link this to international law and its ability to enable or hinder the frameworks’ ability to effect GBV policy interventions. Through looking at international law, international human rights and law, and women, peace and security, the blog determines that international law is on its way to understanding GBV and should focus on improving GBV policy interventions rather than breaking the continuum.
