NGO CSW66 Forum Parallel Event: Tales of two worlds Decolonising knowledge and funding on VAW

    To end violence against women (VAW) we need evidence on what works, where and for whom. Yet, investment in VAW research doesn’t match the size of the problem. This is a problem for those of us in the field of knowledge production, especially given the importance of research to inform policy and practice and the importance of evidence based and evidence informed prevention programmes to improve the lives of children and women. As such, as a field, we must advocate for more and better resources for research on gender based violence (GBV). For SVRI ‘better’ funding for research is grounded in feminist principles, acknowledges, and addresses power dynamics, involves honest, transformative relationships between donors and grantees and creates accessible and equitable processes that support priority driven research in low and middle income countries (LMICs) conducted by low and middle income country (LMIC) based researchers.

    The panel discussed and shared a set of advocacy resources created in dialogue with the field for increased and enhanced funding for VAW research. This includes a study tracking investment in research on VAW; a global shared research agenda to guide research & investment, along with a guide for funders on funding ethically. These tools provide us the opportunity to engage with funders to highlight inequities and advocate for shifting more resources, in better ways, to LMICs and LMIC based researchers including those from marginalised communities. The tools will also support the VAW Prevention Accelerator to develop a shared advocacy agenda to raise funds for VAW prevention globally.
