In LINEA’s July 2015 webinar, Julian Barr, Dr Nancy Glass and Emeka Nwankwo describe how they have measured social norms to track changes in the course of their work. You can replay this insightful discussion now.
Using case studies from programmes in Nigeria, South Sudan and Somalia, this panel discusses how they are measuring social norms to evaluate programmes aimed at increasing gender equity and reducing sexual violence.
Julian Barr and Emeka Nwankwo measured social norms as part of their evaluation of a DFID-funded programme in Nigeria, Voices for Change (V4C). Dr Nancy Glass draws from her work on the UNICEF-led Communities Care (CC) project, aiming to change social norms on sexual violence against women and girls in humanitarian contexts.
