The What Works to Prevent Violence Against Women and Girls: Economic and Social Costs of Violence programme, has been awarded to a consortium of globally prominent organisations. The consortium will be led by the National University of Ireland, in partnership with Ipsos MORI and the International Center for Research on Women.

The programme will look at the social and economic costs of violence against women and girls in both conflict and non-conflict contexts, and will develop estimates of the macro-level, direct and intangible costs of VAWG. Further, it will develop innovative methodologies to capture the full impact of violence against women and girls on economic and social dynamics.
