Technical Advisory Groups

Technical Advisory Groups (TAGs) were established to support Component 2’s studies in Kenya and South Sudan.

The main purpose of the TAGs is to provide technical input on research questions, ethical and safety measures, and dissemination and uptake strategies. Members are drawn from UN agencies, humanitarian organisations, government ministries, research institutions, I/NGO’s, women’s and civil society organisations and other stakeholders working on VAWG with experience in research and developing policy.

The members of the TAG include amongst them the following areas of knowledge and experience: knowledge of VAWG and gender issues in conflict; ability to extend the impact of the research through promoting research outputs and their translation into policy and practice; understanding and experience in developing research; and experience in developing, implementing and evaluating interventions on VAWG.
