Research Findings on School-Related Gender-Based Violence

Highlights of a comprehensive research commissioned in 5 countries in Asia (Cambodia, Indonesia, Nepal, Pakistan and Vietnam) asking more than 9,000 students on the prevalence and nature of school-related gender-based violence. One of the most shocking fact is 84% children in Indonesia claimed that they have been experienced violence in their school during six months.

Research was conducted by the Asia Regional Office of the International Center for Research on Women (ICRW) in the five countries over 2013 and 2014.
