While the origins of the phenomenon remain, with the opening up of new public spaces for activism new forms of gender-based violence have been recently emerging, from cyber bullying to the use of sexual violence to intimidate women and members of the LGBTI community. As one of the most outrageous and daily violation of human rights, the Beijing process put eliminating gender-based violence at the core of its agenda. It raised awareness about the issue and underlined the importance of taking systematic policy measures in order to prevent these atrocities. Still, the fact that our societies remained largely unequal means that daily violence remains as a method of domination. The roundtable aims to address these challenges from social, legal and political dimensions and come up with recommendation how international processes, such as the CSW could become more transformative from this perspective.
