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.
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!
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.
