The implementation of policies and programs to reduce violence against children often faces challenges. In August 2023, the Indonesian Ministry of Education, Culture, Research and Technology issued a ministerial regulation to enable and support schools as frontline actors in preventing and managing violence in schools. To enhance and support its effective implementation, this project will produce a set of modules based on insights into the facilitators and challenges faced by schools in complying with the ministerial regulation, as well as recommendations for sub-national and national government agencies for its scale-up.

The study will also provide an analysis of areas within the implementation process where gender equality and inclusion considerations should be integrated, strengthened and streamlined. To guide the fieldwork, the study will use the continuous improvement research methodology, which focuses on pragmatism and action orientation. In consultation with the ministry, this study will be conducted in three provinces in Indonesia, including in post-conflict settings.

This project is funded through the Global Partnership for Education Knowledge and Innovation Exchange call for proposals: Knowledge and innovation for achieving gender equality and social inclusion at school.
