Gender-based violence is both a cause and a consequence of gender inequality. Therefore, providing resources to put an end to it is an important part of our work. We provide research, statistics and expertise to help understand the problem and the way it affects our societies. We have carried out a broad range of groundbreaking studies on gender-based violence in Europe.
How much do we all pay to deal with violence? Why do we need to improve administrative data collection from police and justice? Is female genital mutilation a problem in the European Union? Is cyber violence a real threat? You will find answers to these and many other questions in our research.
More than one woman was killed every day by an intimate partner or family member in the EU on average in 2016. To help police prevent repeated acts of intimate partner violence and save lives, the European Institute for Gender Equality (EIGE) has developed a risk assessment guide for police.
EIGE has published an updated step-by-step guide to assess the number of girls at risk of FGM. The fine-tuned methodology will assist those responsible for carrying out risk estimations of female genital mutilation in the EU.
