Recent programme highlights include:
•Gender and Adolescence: Global Evidence (GAGE), an exciting new longitudinal research initiative working in the Global South, aims to strengthen the evidence base on adolescent girls – as individuals and as future women– to maximise their capabilities and shape their own futures. GAGE research will focus on what policies and programmes work, where and why. It will identify the medium- and long-term impacts of interventions for girls, and ascertain how best to time and sequence those interventions.The consortium will produce a global body of evidence, based on data gathered through innovative approaches over eight years (with a potential five-year extension) which will go beyond current frameworks to advance the wellbeing of adolescent girls.
•Advancing Learning and Innovation on Gender Norms (ALIGN) Platform is a four-year knowledge building and learning collaborative which focuses on convening a Community of Practice to share and utilise evidence and build knowledge on both the harmful implications of, and successful strategies to tackle, discriminatory gendered social norms affecting adolescent girls and young women.
•Men and intimate partner violence: from research to action in Bangladesh, Nepal and Pakistan - This report details research exploring the underlying drivers, triggers, risks and influencing factors for intimate partner violence (IPV) in South Asia. It contains a full account of primary research undertaken in three South Asian countries with high levels of IPV: Bangladesh, Nepal and Pakistan. This report was launched both at ODI on International Women’s Day and at a two-day convening on Intimate Partner Violence in Karachi, Pakistan.
