UN Multi-Country Study on Men and Violence

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

The Sexual Violence Research Initiative (SVRI) has taken over the management of the United Nations Multi-Country Study on Men and Violence in Asia and the Pacific quantitative data set.

The UN Multi-Country Study on Men and Violence (UNMCS) was led by four United Nations Agencies - UNDP, UNFPA, UN Women and UNV – through the joint programme Partners for Prevention (P4P). The study sought to understand how masculinities relate to men’s perceptions and perpetration of violence against women. The P4P programme closed in March 2018.

The national and pooled regional data sets are an asset to the field. P4P and SVRI are 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 has agreed to take over the management of the data set. The SVRI periodically puts out calls for applications from qualified researchers to access the data set for secondary analysis. For further information please email: svri@svri.org.
