Mission Statement

CSVR works to prevent violence in all its forms, heal its effects and build sustainable peace and reconciliation in South Africa and internationally. The CSVR Gender-based Violence Programme aims to understand the root causes of gender-based violence in all its forms and at all levels, in order to use this understanding to contribute towards the prevention of gender-based violence through the development and implementation of primary prevention strategies and constructive responses from both civil society and government.
