A social norms perspective can strengthen the capacity of researchers and partner institutions to deliver on the STRIVE agenda. At STRIVE’s 2014 Annual Meeting, held in Johannesburg South Africa in May, Lori Heise presented an overview of the field to a newly formed working group on gender norms and violence. A clear conceptual framework on social norms is proving useful in designing interventions to tackle gender-based violence, child marriage, female genital cutting and other harms.
