The goal of this document is to contribute to building a common understanding of gender-based violence. Specifically, the aim is to establish the root causes of gender-based violence in higher education and research and introduce the holistic 7P model, which has been developed and tested through research, as a starting point for further policy development. The primary target audiences for this White Paper are policymakers and institutional management responsible for the design and implementation of policies to eradicate gender-based violence.
