UN Women East and Southeast Asia.
Request for Proposal
Closing date: October 28, 2011.
UN Women East and Southeast Asia is seeking to contract a research institute or similar professional services organization with the capacity to design, produce and disseminate studies on the perception and attitudes of young people on issues related to violence against women and girls in Lao PDR and Thailand.
In each country, it is envisioned that qualitative data will be collected from girls and boys aged 15-18 using a range of creative, participatory, age-appropriate and gender-sensitive methods, in collaboration with national partners, including education authorities and national researchers.
The specific objectives of this assignment are to:
Examine the attitudes, perceptions, knowledge and practices of girls and boys, aged 15-18, linked to issues of gender roles, gendered power relations, violence in general, and violence against women and girls;
Understand how gender roles and power relations individual, relationship, family and community level are connected to young people’s attitudes and experience of physical, sexual and emotional violence;
Strengthen the commitment of policymakers, including in the education sector, and other key stakeholders to address issues of violence against women and girls through primary prevention programmes; and
Identify effective and appropriate policy and programme interventions for primary prevention, in particular as concerns the attitudes and perceptions of young people, based on research findings.
The research findings will be used to feed into concrete school-based/ youth-targeted prevention strategies and other awareness-raising initiatives planned in the two selected countries (Lao PDR and Thailand). As a result, the research will need to be assigned with this overall goal in mind.
