The Center for Global Development is hosting a conversation around the recently launched report from the EU and UN, Spotlight Initiative, including an initial allocation of Euro 500 million (more than half a billion US dollars) to fight violence against women and girls. How can the impact of this Fund be optimized? What does research and first-hand experience on the ground tell us about what works? And how can it inform policy and political dialogue aimed at eliminating violence against women and girls in all its forms, now and in future?
