United Nations Multi-Country Study on Men and Violence in Asia and the Pacific - Dataset

A UN regional programme, Partners for Prevention, undertook a 6 country, study with over 10,000 men asking them about their use and experiences of violence in Asia and the Pacific. The SVRI is now host of this important dataset. The SVRI periodically puts out calls for applications from qualified researchers to access the data set for secondary analysis.

United Nations Multi-Country Study on Men and Violence in Asia and the Pacific - Dataset

Over the course of 2010-13, a UN regional programme, Partners for Prevention, https://www.partners4prevention.org/ undertook an extensive study on men’s uses and experiences of violence in Asia and the Pacific.  Over 10,000 men in six countries across Asia and the Pacific were interviewed using the UN Multi-country Study on Men and Violence household survey.  The survey captured data on men’s perpetration and experiences of violence, as well as men's other life experiences.

The countries included in the study are Bangladesh, Cambodia, China, Indonesia, Sri Lanka and Papua New Guinea. The study was a collaborative effort involving partners from academia, research institutes, civil society, the United Nations family and governments.

From the beginning, P4P and its partners agreed that data should be a public good and accessible to qualified researchers, especially those from the countries in the study.  The national and pooled regional data sets from this study continue to be an asset to the field and the SVRI has been host of the United Nations Multi-Country Study on Men and Violence in Asia and the Pacific quantitative data set since March 2018.

SVRI is committed to ensuring that the data is used to build knowledge on ending violence against women and girls. To ensure this resource is fully utilised, the SVRI periodically puts out calls for applications from qualified researchers to access the data set for secondary analysis.

We strongly encourage partnerships among researchers from different countries and backgrounds and for researchers in the countries of this study to use the data. For further information please email: svri@svri.org.
