New funding to investigate the effects of social distancing on domestic violence
I am the Principal Investigator of an exciting new project to assess the impact of social distancing measures on domestic violence against women. This research, a partnership with the University of São Paulo, will focus on the two largest metropolitan regions of Brazil, São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro, with some national-level analysis. The project - COVID-19, social distancing and violence against women in Brazil (BRAVE) - also aims to assess the indirect social consequences of increased domestic violence through health costs, labour productivity and supply and other issues. You can find more details about this project on the University of York's COVID research webpage.
BRAVE is one of 20 projects funded via the UKRI Agile Covid-19 GCRF and Newton Fund call. You can find out more about this important funding initiative and the other funded projects in the UKRI press release.
