This review was commissioned by Concern Worldwide to learn from the experiences of others in addressing school-related gender-based violence (SRGBV).

SRGBV has become highlighted as an important arena for prevention and intervention in the education sector but there is little collected intelligence to date on best practice, what constitutes an effective intervention and how this can be measured.

This review analysed seven projects implemented by peer agencies in the area of SRGBV which resulted in multiple recommendations and action steps for Concern going forwards.
