The GendV Project

Urban Transformation and Gendered Violence in India and South Africa

This project is funded by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) which is part of UK Research and Innovation (UKRI), with a grant from the Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF).

The ESRC is the UK's largest organisation for funding research on economic and social issues. They support independent, high quality research which has an impact on business, the public sector and civil society. You can read more about the ESRC here.

The ESRC has offered this 3 year project on Urban Transformation and Gendered Violence a large grant of £1.76 million. 

We are committed to upholding the ESRC's six key principles for ethical research. These are:

1) Research should aim to maximise benefit for individuals and society and minimuse risk and harm

2) The rights and dignity of individuals and groups should be respected 

3) Wherever possible, participation should be voluntary and appropriately informed

4) Research should be conducted with integrity and transparency

5) Lines of responsibility and accountability should be clearly defined

6) Independence of research should be maintained and where conflicts of interest cannot be avoid they should be made explicit
