This discussion will explore the grave problem of gender violence on the subcontinent, in its different manifestations, and probe a series of strategies for addressing the problem. Potential policy approaches span a huge spectrum of options, from criminalization and reduction of impunity for perpetrators, to more robust and creative investments in adolescent education, mentorship and peer leadership opportunities.
