It has been suggested in the previous chapter, that, where human rights treaties do not explicitly spell out when preventive and protective obligations apply, there are three criteria useful to establishing their existence. It therefore has been concluded that because of the endemic and structural occurrence of gender-based violence against women and its destructive impact on the individual and collective level, all States have positive obligations in this regard.
