Boduszek, Daniel, Debowska, Agata, Jemmott, Ena Trotman, Da Breo, Hazel, Willmott, Dominic, Sherretts, Nicole and Jones, Adele (2017) Victimisation, violence perpetration, and attitudes towards violence among boys and girls from Barbados and Grenada. Research Report. University of Huddersfield, Huddersfield.

Interpersonal violence is widespread in the Eastern Caribbean, which may be a remnant of the violent colonisation history noted in the region. Although official statistics on the occurrence of interpersonal violence are collected in Barbados and Grenada, such acts tend to be under-reported. As such, the aim of this project was to gain a better insight into the prevalence of violence victimisation and violence perpetration, as well as the level of acceptance of interpersonal violence, including gender-based violence (GBV), among girls and boys from Barbados and Grenada. To overcome the problem of under-reporting and to understand how violence is perceived from the children’s perspective, the current study used self-report, anonymous survey methodology.
