Decoding technology facilitated gender-based violence: a reality check from seven countries

To design better ways to tackle technology facilitated gender-based violence, we need far greater understanding of its scale and context-specific nature, and more evidence on responses that work. This multi-country study by the Generation Gender programme, helps close these knowledge gaps.

Drawing on literature and key informant interviews, we studied technology facilitated gender-based violence (TFGBV) in Indonesia, Jordan, Lebanon, Morocco, Rwanda, South Africa, and Uganda.

We looked at the nature of TFGBV and its impacts – revealing how local contexts, culture, and legislation affect how violence is meted out and experienced, and how people access accountability and justice, or avoid doing so.

Across different locations, we found there is a critical lack of knowledge and understanding about TFGBV, a spill over between online and offline violence, a disproportionate impact on vulnerable groups, and a tendency for patriarchy and social ideas of morality and gender roles to magnify TFGBV.

The study pinpoints efforts to prevent and mitigate TFGBV, and offers recommendations for how nations, organisations and communities can take action.
