The Sexual Violence Research Initiative envisions a world where diverse ideas are embraced, collaboration is the norm and there is a global rebalancing in research resources, knowledge, and power. Our Strategic Plan 2020-2024 outlines who we are, our vision, mission, and how we plan to achieve our goals during this time.

With thousands of members from all around the world, the SVRI is one of the largest global networks for advancing research on violence against women, violence against children and other forms of violence driven by gender inequality. We are committed to promoting work that is rights-based, ethical, feminist and women-centered, which emphasises kindness and is trauma-informed.

The SVRI strives to build a field of researchers, practitioners, funding partners, policy-makers, and other important stakeholders, working together to develop effective. scalable, cost-effective programmes and services to respond to and include survivors compassionately and effectively, and to prevent and ultimately end violence against women and violence against children. Given that the greatest burden of violence against women and violence against children remains in lower- and middle-income countries, it is imperative that more research is undertaken in these settings, and that this research is led by researchers based in these countries.

The SVRI Strategic Plan 2020-2024 details the vision, values and role of the organisation, linking these to our principles and our core goals of building evidence, strengthening capacity, promoting partnerships, and influencing change. The plan describes key actions that will be taken to achieve the following strategic outcomes:

Innovations

An increase in innovations tested by strong research designs for improved responses to and prevention of violence against women and violence against children.

Income

An increase in the number of low- and middle-income country-based researchers leading rigorous, impactful and innovative research on violence against women and violence against children in low- and middle-income countries.

Co Operative

A co-operative and nurturing field where knowledge is shared and people collaborate and support each other.

Resources

More resources mobilised and used effectively for violence against women and violence against children research and evidence-based practice in low- and middle-income countries.
