Attorneys-General from around the world are meeting in Auckland today, focusing on ways to deal with those accused of sexual violence against women and children.

The first such gathering was held in 2009, and each year a major topic for discussion is put on the table.

Our Attorney-General Christopher Finlayson is hosting the annual meeting of his counterparts from Australia, Canada, the United States, England, Wales and Northern Ireland.

"This year they're looking at developments and best practice when it comes to prosecuting crimes of sexual violence.

Christopher Finlayson also hopes to compare notes form other jurisdictions and find ways to solve challenges posed by globalisation to law enforcement and the courts.
