- Towards a More Comprehensive Understanding of the Direct and Indirect Determinants of Violence Against Women and Children in South Africa: S – (Report/Study)
Towards a More Comprehensive Understanding of the Direct and Indirect Determinants of Violence Against Women and Children in South Africa: Summary of Research Findings, Illustrative Case Studies and Best Practice Recommendations is one of the major outputs from a research project that was undertaken in 2014 and 2015, and was entitled: ‘Towards a more comprehensive understanding of the direct and indirect determinants of violence against women and children in South Africa with a view to enhancing violence prevention’. It was facilitated by the Safety and Violence Initiative (SaVI) at the University of Cape Town (UCT) in partnership with the Children’s Institute (also at UCT). It arose from a request by the Cabinet-level Inter-Ministerial Committee (IMC) to Investigate the Root Causes of Violence Against Women and Children. Funding and technical support was provided by the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) in Pretoria.
