international work  The Office of Women in Development at the U.S. Agency for International Development has funded and published a review of research literature on gender violence in schools in developing countries conducted at WCW. The report, “Unsafe Schools: A Literature Review of School Related Gender Based Violence in Developing Countries” was written by Jo H. Kim and Susan M. Bailey with Sumru Erkut , Nada Aoudeh, Ineke Ceder, and Victoria L. Banyard. The report identifies, annotates and synthesizes research studies and projects/interventions addressing primary- and secondary-school-related gender-based violence.

 

The review reveals the need for more studies documenting and analyzing the effects of gender violence on the education and health of students in developing nations. A major gap in the existing research includes a lack of information on boys as victims, including recognition of homophobia as a root cause of much of the violence directed toward boys.


The full report, including the 70-page annotated bibliography, is available on the Web at:
