Launch: Intersections between violence against children and violence against women: Global research priorities

    Homes are supposed to be safe havens but, for many children and women homes are settings where they experience recurring violence leading to devastating consequences. There is a growing global recognition that violence against women and violence against children, intersect in different ways. Establishing research priorities that focus on these intersections is important to help advance our understanding of how to address these two forms of violence in a more structured way and help measure progress and create safe homes for children, women and families.

    UNICEF Innocenti partnered with the World Health Organization’s (WHO) Human Reproduction Programme (HRP) and the Sexual Violence Research Initiative (SVRI), to ask 153 policy makers, practitioners, advocates, and survivors what knowledge could help them simultaneously reduce violence against children and women and compassionately respond to survivors’ needs. The result is the report “Intersections between violence against children and violence against women: Global Research Priorities”.

    On 13 March 2024, we launched the Intersections between VAC and VAW global research priorities. During this webinar we discussed the report, the 10 highest-ranking questions identified, and insights from partners who work at the intersection of these two forms of violence.
