Research on sport as a setting to prevent violence against women, the work involves a literature review and a program of stakeholder engagement that will result in a technical paper and evidence guide to provide recommendations for how Our Watch can increase the reach and impact of sports as a setting for prevention in future.

A team effort: preventing violence against women through sport focuses on the work being undertaken in structured sport settings and by sporting organisations. The Evidence Guide summarises and recognises the work sporting organisations undertake to prevent violence against women. It draws on stakeholder consultations and a review of international and national evidence about the important role that sports can play in preventing violence against women and outlines ten key elements of promising practice in sport settings.
