There is an urgent need for programs that reduce violence in the home in emergencies, including intimate partner violence (IPV), emotional abuse, physical and sexual abuse, and child maltreatment and neglect. While there is a growing body of evidence on children’s and women’s global exposure to violence in emergency settings, efforts to both measure and prevent violence within the household have lagged behind evidence emerging from development settings. Work on violence against children and violence against women in emergencies has been fragmented across the Gender-based Violence and Child Protection sectors, which has impeded effective learning and action within and across these sectors. The Transforming Households: Reducing Incidence of Violence in Emergencies (THRIVE) project, co-led by the UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF) and the CPC Learning Network at Columbia University, aims to bridge this gap by investigating drivers of household violence during emergencies and identifying innovative interventions to address and mitigate this violence.
