Generating New Evidence to Address Violence Against Women: Realizing Women’s Rights

Project description

Harnessing data and experimental designs towards empowerment of women

Violence against women (VAW) is both a cause of and a manifestation of gender inequality. The evidence base for policy has been limited by both a scarcity of data and a paucity of causal research. The EU-funded Evidence-VAW project will explore behavioural activation and institutional designs to address the challenges of encouraging reporting of violence, and delivery of justice in this domain. To this end, it will conduct lab and field experiments, gathering unique data on beliefs, norms and social networks, and analyse administrative judicial and political data. Evidence-VAW will consistently use techniques for causal identification to produce rich scientific evidence to guide policy and further scholarship.
