Beyond Fragility & Inequity

This report identifies the socio-economic factors that impact upon the choices women make when determining if they should remain in an abusive relationship. The economic dimensions of domestic violence do not sit in isolation; they are in fact situated within a broader web of other societal pressures, obligations, and relationships. Given that, this research focuses on the intersection between economy and violence, while drawing together broader factors that help us to understand women’s decision-making when in abusive relationships. This research was undertaken in three districts of Timor-Leste —Baucau, Covalima, and Dili—during the first half of 2014. Research findings were complemented by an analysis of existing survey data and a literature review. A total of 339 respondents were involved in the field work. The project was managed by the Foundation’s Nabilan (Ending Violence Against Women) Program.
