The Concept and Measurement of Violence

The Concept and Measurement of Violence

A Gender Equality Perspective

by Brian FrancisJude Towers Sylvia Walby and others
Publication Date: 15/02/2017
RRP  $29.99 $29.75
Both a guide to international debate on the measurement of gender-based violence (GBV) for policy purposes and a handbook on how those measurements can be best achieved, this book draws on cutting-edge statistical research to propose new measurement methods designed for promoting gender equality in the contemporary world. As policy aimed at reducing violence or providing assistance to women rarely tackles the underlying issue of gender inequality, and vice versa, there exists a clear need for guidance. Covering homicide (and femicide specifically), rape and sexual assault, domestic and intimate partner violence, female genital mutilation, and human trafficking, and including practical tools such as definitions of key terms, indicators, and coordination mechanisms, this book provides a framework for measuring GBV that will shape service design, service delivery, and research practices. Engaging with the political nature of statistics and the links between knowledge and power, The Concept and Measurement of Violence against Women and Men has the potential to set new standards and guidelines for decades to come.
