Description of the contract

The European Institute for Gender Equality (EIGE) envisages awarding a middle-value contract for a study on Research and Development of the Indicators on Cyber Violence Against Women and Girls.

Description of the requested services

The study will aim to develop a comparable measurement framework and provide a base for agreement on new indicators for measuring the prevalence of Cyber Violence Against Women and Girls (CVAWG) across all EU Member States.

The study will be grounded in EIGE’s 2022 mapping of national policies, research, definitions and data on CVAWG, including concepts and definitions of different forms of cyber violence and available survey and administrative data collection across the EU-27.

The study will present a proposal for a comparable measurement framework or tool for data collection on CVAWG that includes operational indicators, in order to work towards a harmonised data collection system across the EU-27, based on a common understanding of CVAWG. The proposal will be refined in collaboration with Member States, to preliminary assess feasibility and eventual challenges, providing relevant recommendations.

The study will also engage with social media platforms and conduct a gender-based analysis of their policies on content moderation and management of reported cases of abuse. It will propose recommendations for the improvement of the existing regulatory framework in view of preventing cases of CVAWG, including compliance with EU and international regulations.
