Meeting Survivors’ Needs: Gender-Based Violence Against Inuit Women and the Criminal Justice System

Gender-based violence—physical and sexual assaults against women—is a serious issue. The criminal justice system has been given a key role in responding to this violence. Pauktuutit is conducting a research project to study the criminal justice response to gender-based violence in Inuit Nunangat in order to increase awareness and understanding of the needs, challenges, and service gaps that face Inuit women.

The primary research question is: How can the criminal justice system be made more responsive to the needs of Inuit women who experience gender-based violence? The goal is to advance effective criminal justice strategies to alleviate gender-based violence and prevent re-victimization, with a focus on the needs and safety of Inuit women.

 

The deadline to complete the survey is September 15, 2021.
