New Learning: Expanding what we know about Intersecting VAW-VAC<http://www.svri.org/svrinterest/new-research-expanding-what-we-know-about-intersecting-vaw-vac>: For over a decade, Raising Voices has been working to prevent both violence against women (VAW) and violence against children (VAC). While they understand all violence as an abuse of power, for the most part of their VAW and VAC programming has evolved independently. In 2015, they set off to better understand the interconnections between VAW and VAC, from the perspective of Ugandan families. Today they are excited to share several pieces from this research (in partnership with Columbia University, Makerere University, and support from the SVRI<http://www.svri.org/what-we-do/research-support/svri-grant/svri-grant-2015>) that they hope will provoke reflection and further questioning. Read their qualitative results here<http://www.svri.org/sites/default/files/attachments/2017-05-12/1-s2.0-S0277953617302721-main.pdf> and their Learning Paper No. 7 here<http://www.svri.org/sites/default/files/attachments/2017-05-19/Raising%20Voices%202017.pdf>.

II.              SVRI member's request

Digital landscaping survey: Learning about the linkages between intimate partner violence and family planning<https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/FP-IPV-links>: Passages Project has developed this short survey to collect information on the linkages between intimate partner violence (IPV) and family planning (FP) outcomes, the social and gender norms that influence that relationship, and promising approaches addressing both. Through this survey, they are interested in learning about your personal experiences and your organization's experiences regarding:

1. The relationship between IPV and FP;
2. The influence of social and gender norms on the relationship between IPV and FP;
3. Implementing, scaling up and evaluating interventions addressing FP and IPV, including normative interventions, and;
4. Your insights, information, and literature recommendations on the above-mentioned topics.

The survey is available online, at: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/FP-IPV-links. All responses will be confidential and it will take participants 20 minutes to complete the survey. All responses should be completed by 15 June 2017.

Survey results will contribute to a final literature review and synthesis report, which will be disseminated among practitioners in this area in order to increase the evidence and knowledge base surrounding the linkages between intimate partner violence and family planning, and the social norms that drive both. This research will both improve Passages' own work on scalable social norm interventions and will contribute to the wider understanding of this nexus. They hope that this will also be able to inform future programming that supports integrated program design.
