Violence in London: what we know and how to respond | The Behavioural Insights Team Mayor of London Violence Reduction Unit covers sexual assault

Violence in London: what we know and how to respond | The Behavioural Insights Team Mayor of London Violence Reduction Unit covers sexual assault | Women and Gender Studies | Scoop.it
We have worked with the Mayor of London’s Violence Reduction Unit to carry out the first ever capital-wide assessment of violence. In our new report we bring together data analysis and new research from leading academics to complement the voices of London’s communities with evidence of large-scale patterns and trends to inform decision making. We also present the evidence on what works to prevent violence so policy makers can incorporate insights about what has previously been effective and why into new or existing programmes, and make commissioning decisions based on a good understanding of what we do and do not know.
