Intimate Partner Violence and Forced Displacement: From Research to Action
Forced displacement is on the rise. At the end of 2020, there were over 80 million forcibly displaced persons worldwide, doubling since 2010. Although commitments to addressing the crisis are growing, knowledge gaps surrounding the impacts of forced displacement persist, especially in terms of how men and women are affected differently. The World Bank’s Gender Dimensions of Forced Displacement program seeks to bridge some of these gaps by studying how gender inequality interacts with and compounds forced displacement. In the first of four webinars presenting GDFD research findings, World Bank Senior Gender-based Violence Specialist Diana Arango and Harvard’s Dr. Jocelyn Kelly present research on the heightened risks of intimate partner violence among displaced women in Colombia, the DRC, and Liberia. These novel studies shed light on the relationship between instability and conflict in the community and violence in the home and point to critical policy implications for protecting women from abuse.
