Violence prevention

SaVI researchers and associates are currently undertaking research on various aspects of violence prevention in Africa, including: violence against women and children; youth violence; and men’s violence against men.

The core SaVI team is in the process of finalising a research project funded by USAID and in partnership with ALPS Resilience that focused on 15 communities across 4 provinces in South Africa (Eastern Cape, Gauteng, KwaZulu-Natal, and Western Cape) that focused on xenophobic violence. The research findings will be used to inform peacebuilding interventions (where appropriate).
