    Research output: Contribution to journalLetterpeer-review


    This In Brief reports on research undertaken in Bougainville in October 2015 (Eves and Crawford 2014).1 Unlike previous studies, this research specifically explored the relationship between womens economic empowerment and violence against women through in-depth qualitative interviews. Interviewees included business women in the urban context of Arawa (Kieta District) and rural women involved in informal marketing and alluvial mining (Panguna District) and in informal marketing and cocoa farming (Tinputz District).2 Preliminary analysis reveals a strong connection between mens excessive alcohol consumption and violence against their intimate partners.
