LACLEARN Gender-Based Violence Impunity Regional Study: Dominican Republic Case Study

Completed in February 2024, the DR country case study is one of eight case studies that comprise the LACLEARN GBVI Regional Study. Applying an intersectional gender and political economy approach, this case study explores impunity for GBV against Haitian women in the DR. The case study first diagnoses the state of GBV impunity in the DR, then identifies solutions to address impunity, and finally provides practical recommendations to USAID on strategies for operationalizing changes needed to promote pathways to GBV accountability that survivors recommend.
