Intergenerational transmission of domestic violence in urban areas in Peru

Child violence within Peru is not part of health policies because it is not a visible problem to policymakers and there is no evidence on what produces child violence. Martin Benavides from the Group for the Analysis of Development (GRADE) presented a paper at the GDN’s 13th Annual Conference that looks at the issue violence on to children, which transcends from mothers or women who have experienced violence at one point of time.

In his paper ‘Invisible negative externalities: the inter-generational transmission of domestic violence in urban areas in Peru’ Benavides finds strong relations between gender and violence in urban areas, and calls for an integrated women’s empowerment approach.
