Omega submission on FOAA for women and girls

Submission in response to Call for inputs from the mandate of the Special Rapporteur for his report to be presented at the 75th session of the General Assembly on Women and Girls and FoAA.

The Omega Research Foundation welcomes the Special Rapporteur’s interest in the human rights violations women and girls face as they exercise their rights to freedom of peaceful assembly and association. The Omega Research Foundation (Omega) is an independent UK-based research organisation with an international focus. We are dedicated to providing rigorous, objective, evidence-based research on the manufacture, trade in, and use of military, security, and police technologies. We value the opportunity to contribute to this Call, and will focus our submission on incidents where the rights of women and girls have been curtailed through the excessive use of force and equipment.
