Our knowledge strategy

Understand our approach to generating and curating knowledge

One of our core objectives is to ensure that the existing research and Practice-Based Knowledge on the causes of violence and how best to prevent it is understood and applied to improve the effectiveness of programmes to prevent violence against women and children. The Collaborative has therefore committed to identify and synthesise diverse forms of knowledge and evidence, and make it accessible and usable for various actors in the violence prevention community.

Our knowledge objectives

What the Collaborative aims to achieve
  • To curate and develop a high-quality selection of accessible synthesis resources for programme funders and managers and the wider research community.

  • To curate and develop a set of accessible synthesis resources and ‘practice-based’ products to support practitioners and activists implementing violence prevention programmes.

  • To work with colleagues managing the Collaborative’s accompaniment programme to curate and develop resources for prevention mentors and those providing technical assistance in the violence prevention field.

  • To package resources for different audiences, and launch and disseminate them via different social media channels and our partners and allies.

  • To elevate practitioner and activist voices and experiences and diverse forms of knowledge — especially from the Global South — that can help to understand and improve violence prevention initiatives.

  • To facilitate a dialogue in the prevention field on Practice-Based Knowledge, why it is important, how it can be captured, synthesised and applied to improve prevention programming.
