Nopoor Policy Brief Nr.33: OPPORTUNITY OR CHALLENGE: THE ROLE OF SOCIAL NETWORKS IN REDUCING DOMESTIC VIOLENCE IN METROPOLITAN POOR CONTEXTS OF PERU

Type of the publication: 

The purpose of this document is to analyse how social capital can help women cope with domestic violence in urban contexts of poverty and segregation, where although high levels of this phenomenon have been registered, most of the abused women aren’t denouncing the acts of violence against them. The results presented below are based on two NOPOOR research projects conducted in Lima, Peru.
