|Title||Victimisation, violence perpetration, and attitudes towards violence among boys and girls from Barbados and Grenada|
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 underreported.
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 selfreport,
anonymous survey methodology.
