"Ami Sei Vítima Beibeik": Looking to the needs of domestic violence victims

12/10/2013

Dr. Deborah Cummins

This report was produced under the Access to Justice Program, funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and implemented by The Asia Foundation in Timor-Leste since 2002. The report arose out of the need for greater understanding of the legal needs of women to assist with service delivery for women. The research was designed to provide particular support to the Victim Support Service (VSS) of the national NGO Judicial Systems Monitoring Program (JSMP), which provides free legal assistance to women and children victims of domestic and sexual violence. While the report focuses mainly on legal issues arising out of the resolution of domestic violence cases, its findings are of broader use to all those agencies working to end violence against women in Timor-Leste.
