"The Role of Education in Preventing Gender-based Violence"
Proceedings from the Inter-American Forum
San Jose, Costa Rica
February 7-8, 2002
The Institute and our partner, the Universidad de Costa Rica's Center for Research in Women's Studies, brought together 26 participants from 10 countries around the Americas to begin an ongoing dialogue about gender violence. The goal of the Forum was to bring together people who weren't part of the "usual crowd" at international gatherings, but rather to link practitioners and researchers and to reach across boundaries of country and language to focus on how education can support the elimination of gender violence.
