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.
#SafeSpaces: EIGE highlights widespread forms of cyber violence against women and girls, proposes definitions
EIGE has released a new report ‘Combating cyber violence against women and girls’ which underlines the urgent need to develop and adopt harmonised and mutually exclusive definitions of cyber violence against women and girls and its forms.
EIGE’s latest report on coercive control and psychological violence across the EU Member States proves high prevalence. However, increased criminalisation measures are starting to be put in place. More needs to be done.
