Violence against women and girls and resilience: Links, impacts and perspectives for the Chadian context.
Le Masson V, Benoudji C, Reyes S.S, Bernard G. 2018
This report explores the links between gender-based violence (GBV), and the resilience shown by survivors, their households and the wider community. The purpose of this study is to explore two main questions:
1. How does violence against women and girls (VAWG) impact the processes of social change required to build resilience?
2. How can resilience programmes address VAWG?
To answer these questions, this research – based on the Chadian context – draws on a combination of secondary data from the 2014–2015 Demographic and Health Survey, which documents the nature and extent of violence against women in Chad, as well as qualitative fieldwork and analysis that explore how violence affect the resilience of survivors and those who live with them.
