Resource Centre

Violence against women and children is a global problem and one of the most serious violations of basic human rights.

Worldwide, more than one in three woman is subjected to physical or sexual abuse by her partner, and even more women are exposed to repeated psychological violence. In the countries, with which Danner collaborates, the numbers are far higher.

The Danner Resource Centre works to eliminate violence against women and children by cooperating with organizations nationally and internationally on professionalizing the field of shelter work and supporting civil society organizations working for GBV survivors to unify and collaborate.

Every woman who has been subjected to coercive control and violence needs support to regain her inner strength, and find new ways to live a life free from violence. We believe every woman is an agent in her own life.

Protection of women's and children’s basic human rights is at the core of our work and belief. We work to shed light on the structural causes of violence against women. We fight to break the taboo about domestic violence and to hold politicians accountable in the struggle for gender equality.

Violence in close relationships is extremely complex, but it is possible to stop it by using a holistic approach. The violence or controlling behavior has psychological, relational, structural and gendered aspects. Violence against women has many human, health, social and economic consequences. It is a global issue and happens in all societies.

Through research and documentation, the Danner Resource Centre works to initiate and generate new knowledge and data on the field of violence against women. We create public and political awareness on the need for change and seek to generate changes of attitudes and legislation in favor of women who have been subjected to intimate partner violence.

There is a continuous need for new knowledge in the field of gendered violence, not least in recognition of the continued violations of women’s rights, which the #metoo movement has made evident. Rape and sexual harassment, sexism in the public debate, among youth and in the work place are some of the problems we have to continuously address and fight on all levels of society.

Danner’s Resource Center employs around 15 staff members. The staff covers mùltiple areas of expertise including project managers, gender specialists, ethnic minority and migration specialists, policy officers, training consultants, M&E specialists, communications specialists, fundraisers and interns.
