About the report: Beyond Income, Beyond Averages, Beyond Today
This report looks at inequalities in human development with a new lens. It assesses what inequalities are becoming important today, how they differ around the world and among population groups, and how they are changing. People’s discontent with inequality is linked to perceptions of unfairness in their societies. The depth of inequality must be assessed beyond income, beyond averages (and summary measures of inequality) and beyond today.
This Behavioural Insight Study on Gender-Based Violence is a joint product of UNDP South Africa and Georgia and UN Women and is the winner of the 2017 UN Innovation Award. This study aims to contribute towards addressing the challenge of Gender-Based Violence by understanding why people, especially those closest to the survivors of GBV and other “bystanders” from the general public, do nothing or not act in a timely and effective manner to stop the violence before something more serious happens. This study therefore seeks to identify mechanisms that may spur citizen action and end “Bystanderism”.
