The then Parliamentary Under Secretary of State for International Development, the Rt. Hon. Lynne Featherstone, launched What Works to a packed room at the Global Summit to End Sexual Violence in Conflict on June 11.
Speakers had to be set up outside the main auditorium, to accommodate the level of interest from policymakers who were willing to stand in order to learn more about the DFID flagship programme. The launch and involvement with the Global Summit received great press with the key message that violence is preventable.
