Presentations on how a social norms perspective might be applied to partner violence and other issues.
In January 2013, STRIVE brought together a group of researchers and practitioners in a three-day meeting that aimed to:
- explore the utility of applying a social norms perspective to intimate partner violence, child marriage and other social issues
- catalyse a dialogue between practitioners who are seeking to transform norms and thinkers who are developing and testing social norms theory
- build capacity to incorporate a social norms perspective when designing programmes and to capture shifts in norms as part of programme evaluation.
Presentations are available to download below.
