Changing social norms has become the preferred approach in global efforts to prevent gender-based violence (GBV). In this paper we trace the rise of social norms within GBV-related policy and practice and their transformation from social processes that exist in the world to beliefs that exist in the minds of individuals. As social norms approaches are increasingly prioritised over addressing the non-normative contributors to GBV (such as access to and control over productive resources), awareness of the limitations of social norms approaches is vital.

Presenters:

  • Amanda Gilbertson, anthropologist
  • Kalissa Alexeyeff, Senior Lecturer in Gender Studies, University of Melbourne

A panel discussion will follow the presentation and will be facilitated by Cathy Humphreys.

MAEVe is an interdisciplinary research alliance based at The University of Melbourne with the broad aim of ending violence against women and their children.
