Submission to Gauteng Province Department of Economic Development on The Gauteng Liquor Bill, 2012

Sonke’s interest in the Bill is linked to its mission to prevent gender-based violence (GBV) on the basis that we are of the view that alcohol consumption facilitates and exacerbates GBV. This submission explores the intersection between alcohol consumption and GBV and provides comments and recommendations put forth by Sonke on the Bill.
