Studying gender-based violence in schools: a methodology from Malawi

This paper presents quantitative research instruments developed for a study examining gender-based violence in schools in Malawi.

The authors present details on the sampling methodology, interview guidelines, and suggested preliminary data analysis. The aim of the interview guides is to assess the knowledge, attitudes, practices, and experiences of boys, girls, and teachers with gender- based physical, psychological and sexual violence at schools including in the classroom, on the school grounds, and going to and from school.

The study was conducted by DevTech Systems, Inc. and the Centre for Educational Research and Training (CERT) through the USAID-funded Safe Schools Program. Safe Schools’ focus is where education, gender, and violence come together in the form of school-related gender-based violence.
