This deliverable presents an assessment framework to support universities and research organisations in their work against gender-based violence. It is based in the logic of the Impact Driver Model (Mergaert et al. 2022) and draws on the knowledge produced throughout the UniSAFE project. The objective is to develop an assessment framework to enable the identification of the strengths and weaknesses of universities and research organisations, and to assess progress, in addressing gender-based violence. It is informed by the micro, meso and macro level research conducted in UniSAFE WP3, WP4, WP5, WP6 and the consortium and stakeholder workshops in WP5, WP6, and WP7. The assessment framework is presented as tool to be used by individual universities and research organisations, and includes the 7P model (Prevalence, Prevention, Protection, Prosecution, Provision of Services, Partnerships and Policy). 

It builds upon the ideas and concepts established in the Impact Driver Model on gender equality and provides specific indicators that can be used by RPOs to assess their overall institutional capacity and progress on addressing gender-based violence. The assessment framework consists of eight impact drivers and 18 indicators, and seven sub-indicators detailing each P of the 7P model. The impact drivers include institutional frameworks, concepts, institutional measures, victim-centred approach, knowledge and expertise, leadership commitment, information and communication, and monitoring and evaluation
