What are the preconditions for widespread and systematic sexual and gender based violence (SGBV) in a society? The Preventing Mass Sexual Violence in Conflict and Post-Conflict Settings in Asia-Pacific (PSVAP) Project seeks to answer this question by identifying the factors associated with heightened risk of SGBV across countries, especially the relationship between endemic violence against women and extreme cases of SGBV in the Asia-Pacific Region.
Led by Prof. Jacqui True (Monash University) and Dr. Sara Davies (Queensland University of Technology), this ARC Discovery Project investigates the causes of mass sexual and gender-based violence in conflict and post-conflict countries of the Asia-Pacific Region.
