Violence Research Centre


Findings from the Evidence for Better Lives Study's (EBLS) Foundational Study were presented on the 25 November 2019 Symposium at Jesus College Cambridge, where two short films and a key report entitled Addressing Violence against Children. Mapping the Needs and Resources in Eight Cities across the World were launched. 

The EBLS project is an innovative global birth-cohort study in eight medium-size cities: Kingston in Jamaica, Hue in Vietnam, Koforidua in Ghana, Worcester in South Africa, Cluj-Napoca in Romania, Tarlai Kalan in Pakistan, Ragama in Sri Lanka and Valenzuela in the Philippines. The study examines exposure to violence and other adverse experiences while also striving to illuminate how families in different cultures raise and support their children.
