Social Norms Research Workshop – Oxfam in Sri Lanka

On Monday, 27th August, Oxfam in Sri Lanka held a research design and social norms learning workshop to share the research design and tools for feedback with different organisations and partners. The workshop was conducted by OGB Senior Researcher Anam Parvez and local research consultant, Sharanya Sekeram, and was attended by 23 participants, representing a range of organisations working on gender-based violence. All the partners provided feedback on the research tools and questions developed by Oxfam for the formative research phase of the Enough campaign. Oxfam was able to get commitments from partners to support the research team in their respective localities, and also to be engaged throughout the process.
