This project was funded by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) Future Research Leaders Awards and led by the University of Bristol.
The three main aims of this study were
- to examine the prevalence and distribution of women’s and men’s acceptance of Intimate Partner violence in 49 low- and middle-income countries to identify systemic country-level social, political and economic empowerment factors alongside individual-/household-level factors associated with the acceptance of domestic violence
- to examine the influence of legislation.
It includes microdata from the national Demographic and Health Surveys (DHS), and from UNDP, OECD, World Bank and UNESCO databases as well as topic-specific databases such as WomenStats, Armed Conflict Location and Event Data (ACLED).
