COVID-19: Policy Brief and Recommendations - Strengthening efforts to prevent and respond to school-related gender-based violence as schools reopen

This policy brief is targeted at policymakers and practitioners working in gender, education and child protection fields. It draws from emerging evidence on the gendered implications of COVID-19 on violence as well as research from previous health emergencies regarding the impacts of school closures on gender-based violence. Working on the principle of ‘Build Back Better’, this brief may be used to advocate for improved attention to schoolrelated gender-based violence (SRGBV).
