The Prevention of Sexual Violence in Asia Pacific project is concerned with understanding the relationship between endemic violence against women with widespread and systematic sexual and gender based violence. We are documenting all reports of violence against women and girls in three countries: Philippines, Myanmar and Sri Lanka. The purpose is to understand the relationship between political violence, violence against women and spikes in sexual violence atrocities against these populations. The study covers 1998 to ongoing period. We are also conducting fieldwork in each of the three cases to identify reporting gaps and supplement our database on reporting patterns.
