Most Gender-Based Violence (GBV) goes underreported. Women who decide not to report incidents of domestic violence, or are unable to do so (via calls, legal complaints, or seeking institutional help), may end up without access to support or legal services. Subsequently, available data on this phenomenon can and should be leveraged to combat VAWG.
This project aims to contribute to a better understanding of the factors that impact the reporting and registering of domestic violence against women and girls, particularly in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic. To achieve this goal, an analytical model was developed that uses traditional and non-traditional data to identify the multidimensional capabilities to report and register domestic VAWG at the locality level in Bogotá and São Paulo.
The project was developed with the support of Unidas, a network launched by the German Federal Foreign Office to foster dialogue between members and allies whose goal is to create equal opportunities and gender justice.
