GBV Science Fair

GWI has partnered with the South Africa-based Sexual Violence Research Initiative (SVRI), to organize the Five Minute GBV Science Fair, a global competition where researchers can explain their VAWG-based project to the world in a five-minute video clip.

Using the innovative online platform, researchers from around the globe can now access and share the latest peer-reviewed findings to enhance collaboration and learning, reduce duplication of efforts, and ultimately promote safe and ethical research as we improve our understanding of how to prevent and respond to VAWG.   

All video entries are posted to, and the top three are then be selected by an expert panel to receive a cash prize toward their research. You can click here to enter the GBV Science Fair, which is accepting entries until March 1, 2016.
