1) Explore the links between the gendered nature of structural inequalities and the forms of violence against women in three regional contexts (The Middle East and North Africa (MENA), South Asia and Southeast Asia), and
2) To develop an innovative theoretical approach to the study of VAW.
Following the workshop, discussions about a collaborative research project are underway.
