Global Guidance on Addressing School-Related Gender-Based Violence

Authors/editor(s): Education 2030, UN Women, and UNESCO

“Unless we see changes in the gender and power dynamics to change gender based violence, it’s like pouring water over the back of a duck- violence will not change. School-related GBV is a fairly recent area of attention in the education community. The new SRGBV guidance provides core components of addressing GBV, and sets out safe approaches to respond and collect data. We need to see the reflection of teachers, students, parents on gender norms to change GBV in schools.”

—— Nora Fyles, United Nations Girls Education Initiative (UNGEI)

This guidance aims to provide a comprehensive, one-stop resource on school-related gender-based violence (SRGBV), including clear, knowledge-based operational guidance, diverse case studies drawn from examples of promising practice and recommended tools for the education sector and its partners working to eliminate gender-based violence. It distils programme knowledge based on existing global literature, promising practices, expert recommendations and practitioner consensus.
