This report summarizes the main findings as detailed in three memos produced during the seventh quarter of data collection and analysis. This quarterly report covers the time period from November 2015 to January 2016.
Over the three months of November 2015 to January 2016, there were 150 reported incidents of VAWG across the eight NSRP focus states coming from all deployments of the online platform. As with previous quarters, the major reported themes of VAWG incidents were child sexual abuse, and domestic violence. In the Northeast, while reported violence continues to be centered around the insurgency and counter-insurgency, there has been an increase in reports of domestic violence with the establishment of the Borno Observatory service point.
