Teacher Reporting of Violence against Children and Women

The Study on Behavioral Causes Acting as Barriers among Teachers to Intervention/Reporting on Violence against Women and Domestic Violence in Georgia was designed in line with the behavioral science frameworks and generates nationally representative, age and sex desegregated data on teachers’ attitudes on the phenomena, causes and consequences of violence against women and violence against children, explores teachers’ attitudes, social norms and self-confidence around detecting and reporting on VAW/DV, assesses the extent to which teachers are aware of relevant legislation and services available for the victims/survivors of VAWG/DV and identifies behavioral levers that may encourage teachers to intervene/report cases of VAWG/DV.

The Study was conducted in partnership with CRRC Georgia within the framework of the Teachers Taking Stance on Violence against Women and Domestic Violence in Georgia generously funded by the Government of Denmark.
