Lutter contre les violences basées sur le genre en milieu scolaire en Côte d’Ivoire: étude exploratoire

The main objective of the study was to analyse responses to gender-based violence in and around schools in Côte d’Ivoire, in order to inform future planning of policy and practice initiatives. This report draws on the data gathered by the research team, UNICEF CO, national consultants and partners, and presents findings from a scoping study of policy, practice and evidence on school-related gender-based violence (SRGBV) in Côte d’Ivoire. Its core elements consist of: stakeholder mapping and engagement across sectors and with state and non-state actors; analysis of the legislative and policy framework around SRGBV; analysis of programming and initiatives addressing SRGBV; and the identification and evaluation of research and extant data sets. The findings presented here will be used to guide decision making for phase two of the initiative which will take place during 2017, as well as longer term planning and action on SRGBV in Côte d’Ivoire. The findings will provide the basis for reflection and the development of the action plan for the next phase of the End Gender Violence in Schools (EGVS) initiative.
