Duke Cyber Policy and Gender Violence Initiative

Duke’s Cyber Policy and Gender Violence Initiative seeks to explore and challenge the ways digital systems affect survivors of gender-based violence. Using data-driven and policy approaches, we seek to examine how to mitigate the impact of technologies on the safety of survivors. Currently, our efforts are directed at supporting victims through the COVID-19 crisis. Our current work falls into 3 broad streams: data analysis, law and policy solutions, and outreach.
