On 25 November 2015, the International Day on the Elimination of Violence against Women, PRI delivered this oral statement at the Eighth Session of the United Nations Forum on Minority Issues, which focused on minorities in criminal justice systems.
The statement explains the links between violence and the pathways to, and treatment in detention, for women who belong to minority groups. Violence and discrimination of minority women in criminal justice systems is also the topic for a side event hosted by PRI, Quaker UN Office (QUNO), the Permanent Mission of Canada and the UN Office on Drugs and Crime.
