Ortner Center on Violence & Abuse in Relationships


Center faculty and students conduct research on violence against women & girls and violence in the home using a wide variety of research designs, data collection methods, and statistical techniques. 


Research that is underway uses machine learning, data made available through UNICEF, and more. We use the latest technologies in our quantitative and qualitative research with the goal of generating new knowledge that is relevant to policy and practice.
