Candies in Hell +20: Mixed-Methods Study on the Prevention of Violence against Women and Girls in León, Nicaragua

GWI will carry out research examining the history and effectiveness of VAWG prevention efforts in Nicaragua. The study has been awarded funding by SVRI.

The study includes a mixed-methods study to examine 1) whether, in fact, there has been a true reduction in the prevalence of VAWG in Nicaragua over the past 20 years and 2) to explore possible pathways to explain the trends in the patterns of violence. The results of a study of VAWG trends during the period Beijing 1995 and Beijing +20 will provide a unique window on how these changes are implemented and experienced on the ground.
