Learning Network: Education, Research & Resources on Gender Based Violence

Featured Resources:

Gender-based violence (GBV) is a violation of human rights, a serious public health issue, and a barrier to equal political, social, and economic participation. It is the result of complex interactions between factors at the individual, relationship, community, and social/cultural levels. Increasingly, evidence-based research has focused on interventions to prevent and respond to GBV. An important aspect of prevention involves understanding men’s pathways to violence, given that police data show men account for over 80% of perpetrated violence against women. With growing evidence for the association between boys’ experiences of victimization and subsequent perpetration of violence as they age, we have devoted this newsletter and accompanying report to identifying men at risk of becoming perpetrators at earlier points in their lives and providing effective prevention/intervention. The ultimate purpose of this work is to build upon existing knowledge bases on GBV and prevention, with the aim of supporting researchers, policy-makers, and service providers in ending men’s perpetration of gender-based violence.
