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.
Killings of a woman or girl because of her gender in a few EU Member States show the urgency to better respond to this phenomenon. EIGE publishes the report Improving legal responses to counter femicide in the European Union: Perspectives from victims and professionals.
Physical and sexual violence, stalking and sexual harassment happen online, too. We are working with NGOs and graffiti artists to reveal the issues, share the stories and encourage actions. Follow our next steps!
