III. SVRI Members Request: Survey on Coordinated Responses to Violence Against Women and Girls

The Child & Woman Abuse Studies Unit (CWASU), London Metropolitan University, UK, is compiling a summary of the knowledge base on coordinated responses to violence against women and girls (VAWG) on behalf of UN Women. The aim is to create an online compendium of practical resources for policy-makers and practitioners working on the issue in a range of diverse countries and contexts.

Coordinated responses are multi-sectoral interventions that may address one or more forms of VAWG. We are equally interested in responses that deal with a single form of VAWG (e.g. domestic violence, sexual assault, Female Genital Mutilation/Cutting) if they include other aspects of coordination (see examples below). Examples of coordinated responses include:

- A model of service provision where the roles of different sectors (e.g. police, health, education) are harmonised to respond to forms of VAWG
- A programme responding to VAWG (e.g. service for victims, public campaign, educational project) delivered by a range of collaborating partners/agencies
- A Task Force, network or forum bringing together stakeholders from different sectors working on VAWG

This information will contribute towards a new section of the UN Women Global Virtual Knowledge Center on Violence Against Women & Girls (http://www.endvawnow.org/ <http://www.endvawnow.org/> ). Complete the survey here: http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/coordinated_responses_to_VAWG <http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/coordinated_responses_to_VAWG>  by 10 April 2011.
