An understanding of the importance, pervasiveness, and profound impact of online violence on women, gender equality and the open and peaceful functioning of democracies is gaining traction providing an opportunity for the field to advocate for more and better resources to address knowledge gaps and build better programmes to respond to and prevent technology facilitated gender based violence (TFGBV). Co-creating a set of research priorities for the field can be a helpful strategy to address these knowledge gaps and move the field forward in a more joined up way as well as to bring more diverse voices into discussions on this issue. During this session we discussed how SVRI and key partners (UN Women, Association for Progressive Communications and the Global Partnership) are working together on a research priority setting process to draw on the wisdom of the crowd and set research priorities for the next 5-10 years for fair, effective and relevant research on TFGBV - and how you can be involved in the process.
This event was hosted as a parallel event in the framework of the NGO CSW67 Forum.
