The first planning step is to conduct research and gather information about the problem of men’s violence against women. This will help to identify the options for doing something about it through regional action on the underlying determinants.

We conduct research and gather information in order to make better decisions and take more effective action. Here are some things to consider in this step.

  • The questions you ask, the places you go looking for information, and the answers you find all influence the knowledge you gain.
  • Evidence from the past and insight and understanding about the future (Futures Tools) can be brought together into your present context.
  • Test your assumptions and understand the lens you are applying to the information you gather – be as objective as possible.
