Methodological Approaches for Estimating the Economic Costs of Violence Against Women and Girls

The Working Paper has been published by Component Three of the What Works to Prevent Violence Against Women and Girls Programme, whose mandate is to capture the economic and social impacts of violence against women and girls on individuals, households, communities and whole countries.  This study evaluates some of the methodological gaps that currently exist and provides an alternative methodological approach for estimating the full macroeconomic cost of violence against women.
