As part of AGS's continuing work focusing on the global subordination of women, which started with the publishing of the book Crimes Against Women (April 2013) followed by the successful conference on Violence Against Women (November 2014), the Journal of International Relations, Peace Studies & Development proudly presents its 2nd annual issue focusing on Gender-Based Violence & Oppression. The issue of gender-based violence and oppression has been principally discussed within the frame of the effects on women and girls of the unequal power distribution between women and men within society. However, a wider understanding of gender-based violence is emerging internationally with the recognition of the physical violence, political and cultural oppression being committed against the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) community.
