SVRI, UNICEF, LaStrada & World Bank Group. (2017). Reducing gender-based violence through investments in education. Pretoria: SVRI.

Abstract 

Education is central to efforts to prevent gender-based violence. Low levels of education can increase the risk of experiencing or perpetrating violence. In contrast, higher levels of education can reduce such risks, and result in changes in attitudes and behaviours that may lead to abuse. Evidence of the links between education and gender-based violence is needed to inform interventions, particularly in low- and middle-income countries, where the level of education attained and the quality of schooling received needs to be greatly improved. To address this gap, the Sexual Violence Research Initiative and World Bank Group have funded several studies focused on this link.
