Researching the economic dimensions of domestic and family violence: Information gaps and data strategies
This resource identifies information gaps in our understanding of how best to promote the economic wellbeing of victims and survivors of domestic and family violence.
Economic wellbeing is crucial for victims’ and survivors’ capacity to rebuild their lives after experiencing violence. While research into how to protect women’s economic security following violence is growing, there remain many gaps in knowledge of effective methods to prevent and reduce the economic harms of domestic and family violence, and how best to protect and promote the wellbeing of victims and survivors.
This resource covers the following topics:
- prevalence and incidence of economic abuse
- community awareness and recognition of economic abuse
- women’s long-term economic trajectories
- engaging the private sector
- employment and violence
- housing and violence
- accessing financial support
- men and the economic dimensions of violence
- developing datasets on all forms of domestic violence.
Policymakers and researchers working at the intersection of economic security and domestic and family violence will find this resource particularly helpful.
