Reports and Consultations
Eaves carries out extensive research which provides crucial evidence of the nature and scale of violence against women.
Many of the reports below include statistics and real-life case studies that are drawn directly from women who have experienced violence against women.
Our most recent research report “Settling In” was launched in parliament in June 2015 and looks at the experiences of women from outside of the EU who marry British nationals and settle in the UK:
‘Women from all over the world might find themselves in a relationship with a British national and ultimately coming to settle as a spouse or partner, have children together and make a permanent life here. Who are these spouses or partners? What is it like trying to settle in to UK life in this way? What does “integration” mean to these individuals as opposed to the policy makers and academics who normally define the term? These are some of the questions addressed in new research by Eaves.’
The research takes a comprehensive look at the migratory experience for these women by considering employment, education, language, housing, travel, access to services, social life, media rhetoric on migration and support for domestic violence. The report concludes with recommendations from the women themselves on how to improve this process for others in a similar position.
