Need: Call for Information: Research on use of mobile and internet platforms in interventions to tackle gender-based violence

Hello,
I'm an independent women's rights consultant based in the U.K. I've been commissioned to conduct some research on behalf of STATT (www.statt.net) a Brussels-based NGO to look at the use of mobile and internet technologies in interventions to address gender-based violence, particularly in conflict-affected and so-called 'fragile' states. I am interested to connect with organisations that have run or are running projects that fit this description.
We would like to feature some 'case studies' in the report and this would potentially be a great opportunity to share the learning from your project with a wider audience and also learn about what others are doing in this area.
Do get in touch if you would like to (1) participate in the research and/or (2) receive a copy of the report findings.
Look forward to hearing from you soon.
Ceri

Hi Ceri,
Thanks for sharing your research here! I am sure you'll get some responses from our community.

I would love to see a copy of the findings once they're ready! I will private message you with my email address.

Thanks

for flagging that. Unfortunately the report has just been finalised, but I will certainly try to connect with this woman as she may be interested in receiving a copy of the report. Thanks!

Hi Ceri-
I would invite you to post the final report in the Resource Exchange, as many would be interested in reading it. Stella Paul http://worldpulse.com/user/6725 has also written on this topic, and you may find her entries of interest. An organization called MediaShift http://www.pbs.org/mediashift/ has also posted information on use of mobile devices for reporting on gender violence and for accessing help if sufferring from violence.

Thank you for sharing!

Let us Hope together-
