Gender-based violence

Our main focus

Gender-based violence is one of the themes Share-Net Netherlands is focusing on. This Community of Practice aims to align with many different initiatives that are already organized on this broad topic. Their main goal is to share experiences and knowledge to inform and influence research, policy and practice and to learn from each other.

What we do

The Community of Practice organised their first thematic meeting in 2014. A follow up thematic meeting was held on the 8th of December 2016 during the 16 days campaign against violence against women together with the launch of the ‘End Violence against Women and Girls’ campaign.

Only recently, in June 2020, this CoP resumed due to the commitment of the following new members:

Who we are

  • Nieneke van den Akker (Cordaid)
  • Tess Vanacker (Amref Flying Doctors)
  • Anne Kwakkenbos (Cordaid)
  • Hadir Barbar (Individual member)
  • Zainularab Zohra (VSO)
  • Lofthouse, Clare (Plan International)
  • Anastasia Pirvu (Individual member)

New members are still welcome to join the GBV CoP!

Share-Net is a membership network made up of a unique and powerful combination of NGOs and private sector parties, researchers and students, policy makers and practitioners, media outlets and advocates. Through the formation of this Community of Practice, we contribute to, discuss, share, use, and have access to evidence and knowledge-products that are most relevant to the work towards improved SRHR policies and practices tackling gender-based violence.

We actively want to expand our network and are inviting Share-Net Netherlands members to become part of the GBV CoP.  If you are interested to get in touch with the group, feel free to contact us directly anytime.
