Behaviorally Focused Applied Political Economy Analysis for MOMENTUM Nigeria: Primary Research Findings and Results

There is no shortage of literature on issues of gender-based violence (GBV) in Nigeria, but there is little rigorous research that documents gender dynamics from the perspectives of community and traditional leaders. To fill this gap, MOMENTUM Country and Global Leadership conducted this behaviorally-focused applied political economy analysis and associated technical brief to assess Ebonyi and Sokoto States of Nigeria. The analysis identified which behaviors, if practiced, would increase local leader engagement in the prevention and mitigation of intimate partner violence, sexual violence, and child and early forced marriage, and the barriers and incentives to adopting them. Findings are being used to inform MOMENTUM Country and Global Leadership Nigeria activities and can be used by policymakers, researchers, and others as they adapt and expand their work with community leaders to advance a more justiciable and equitable future free from GBV.
