None in Three(Ni3) - A Centre for the Development, Application, Research and Evaluation of Prosocial Games for the Prevention of Gender-based Violence

Lead Research Organisation: University of Huddersfield
Department Name: Sch of Human and Health Sciences

Abstract

VISION - To create a global research centre dedicated to research and serious gaming interventions designed to prioritise the rights of girls and women to live a life free from violence and to prevent violence against those most vulnerable (UN Sustainable Development Goal no. 5; UK Aid Strategy obj.4). The inter-disciplinary, cross-cultural, trans-continental research and partnership platform we will establish will result in a cadre of social scientists and game developers from four ODA-listed countries and the UK, skilled in the development of frontier technologies, advanced research methodologies and policy formulation focused on changing the social and cultural drivers of gender-based violence. This will be known as The DARE Centre: the Centre for the Development, Application, Research and Evaluation of Prosocial Games for the Prevention of Gender-based Violence.

International women rights agreements and domestic laws on gender-based violence (GBV) constitute an important step towards its prevention and elimination. However, there is an implementation gap between policy directives and what happens on the ground and unless people understand why regulations should be observed, they can be ineffective. Furthermore policy-led approaches do little to address the underlying cultural attitudes and values that drive GBV. Therefore, key to reducing violence against women and girls are innovative educational and social strategies which recognize the changing world we live within and challenge GBV related attitudes while they are being formed. Targeting children and youths seems crucial for transforming societies and creating a lasting change to the situation of women worldwide. Based on a unique partnership between institutions in the UK, China, Jamaica, Pakistan and Uganda, (the DARE countries) the Centre will build on the University of Huddersfield's existing domestic violence prevention project 'None in Three' (www.noneinthree.org), to expand the social/cultural impact of prosocial games for the prevention of GBV globally. As evidenced by a growing body of research, the development of game technologies has created new outlets for the perpetration of GBV. However, given the appeal of novel technologies to younger generations, technological advancements may also be utilised for prosocial purposes to empower victims and catalyze action against violence. In recent years, researchers and educators have become increasingly aware of the potential benefits of prosocial video games. Unlike other media, video games scaffold children's experience using narrative and audio-visual content, as well as rules and objectives regulating players' behaviour. A recent meta-analytic study revealed a significant association between playing a prosocial video game and positive social outcomes (Greitemeyer & Mügge, 2014). Violent video games, in turn, lead to a bias in the perception of what counts as aggressive, which evokes aggressive behaviour. Importantly, appropriately designed prosocial video games can enhance moral reasoning and foster empathy in a way that the mere presentation of facts through other media outlets cannot accomplish. Empathy reduces aggression and leads to prosocial actions, which strengthen social bonds and integrates societies. Indicative areas of work for the DARE Centre include: China - promoting a culture of protection against sexual abuse and prevention of trafficking; Jamaica - challenging the commoditization of sex and its relationship to the commercial sexual exploitation of children and promoting a culture of personal accountability among men and boys; Pakistan-improving child protection systems in relation to child marriage and honour killings, Uganda-domestic violence, the prohibition of Female Genital Mutilation and child marriage and, the UK-interpersonal violence within adolescent relationships. These activities all seek to prevent gender based violence and elevate the status of women and girls.

Planned Impact

Academic impact - knowledge production, researcher development and inter-disciplinary collaboration
1. training researchers in the most advanced qualitative and quantitative social sciences research and analytic methods for GBV research;
2. conducting original research into socio-cultural drivers and aetiology of particular forms of GBV in contributing countries;
3. producing psychosocial profiles of attitudes to GBV among children and young people in the five DARE countries;
4. archiving datasets for wider access;
5. producing high quality open access journal articles including inter-disciplinary co-authored outputs (social work, psychology, criminology, digital games, education);
6. incorporation of research findings into university courses (evidence-based practice courses);
7. equipping early career researchers with skills in research leadership;
8. improving career prospects for early career researchers.

Policy impact
1. training on policy evaluation, analysis and formulation
2. working with governments to craft model policies that interweave GBV with prevention through education and technological advancement and crucially, to align with country strategic plans on the achievement of SDGs
3. building implementation science in the respective countries by equipping researchers with skills in robust evaluation and knowledge translation methods (e.g. the Consolidated Framework for Implementation Research - CFIR, a comprehensive, meta-theoretical approach to project evaluation).

Professional/multi-disciplinary impact
1. training on research outcomes for professionals (teachers, school guidance officers, social workers, psychologists, magistry, health workers)
2. use of computer games as a tool in professional development
3. practice-based briefings, publications in professional magazines, professional conferences
4. legacy tools: computer games for ongoing use in GBV prevention education, survey instruments and trained analysts in psycho-social profiling of attitudes among young people to GBV
5. enhancing research and practice skills in identifying and responding to different forms of GBV
6. new knowledge on the attitudes of children and young people to GBV

Societal/community/family impact
1. computer games as a tool to be used in education settings with children and young people to: increase empathy, non-adversarial conflict resolution skills, challenge gender stereotypes, raise awareness about women's rights, empower victims, counter cultural values which contribute to GBV, foster cultures of accountability rather than victim blaming and to build emotional intelligence
2. utilising the computer games as an aid to rehabilitation programmes for persons convicted of GBV crimes;
3. establishing The IDEA, a media hub of Impact, Dissemination and Engagement Activities to engage multiple audiences using multiple methods and wide-reaching social media
4. implementing a series of awareness-raising events for community groups and producing sensitisation films on GBV and the need for family and community engagement in supporting behaviour change
5. training GBV civil society organisations in creating their own strategies for engaging the public in discussions that promote and facilitate shifts in thinking
6. training for media technicians in the production of public engagement films
7. engagement of faith-based and civil society organisations;
8. general public/parent meetings focusing on raising awareness and development of shared responsibility for GBV prevention
9. encouraging help-seeking behaviours from victims and perpetrators of GBV
10. the wider adoption of anti-violence computer games and resultant changes in attitudes and reduction of GBV measured through the application of robust pre-post game exposure surveys

Description Our qualitative research with survivors and perpetrators of specific forms of gender-based violence has enabled us to identify its social and cultural drivers in four diverse countries. This research is now being used to identify policy implications for each country. In addition, we have engaged with Ministries of Education and with schools, to carry out a quantitative survey of young people aged 10 to 18 years, assessing their exposure to violence and mental health related issues. We have conducted this survey with 11,000+ children in Uganda, 8000+ in India, 7000+ in Jamaica and 6000+ in the UK. This significant data set addresses a knowledge gap and furthers understanding of children's exposure to violence, child abuse and neglect and mental health issues in each of these countries, as well as enabling comprehensive and comparative analysis within and between countries. Data analysis is underway but we have already shared emerging results with partners in Jamaica and Uganda who will be seeking urgent pathways to inform and update relevant government departments in respect of the mental health risks to children of their exposure to violence. We have highlighted the completion of the qualitative research in our external newsletter and conference papers on the findings have been delivered at the African Studies Association Annual Meeting in Boston (Nov 2019) by the Uganda partners and at the International Society for the Prevention of Child Abuse and Neglect conference in Qatar (Feb 2020) by Research Fellows from all four study countries (Symposium on Adult Survivors of GBV, Day 2 - 16th Feb). In addition to these outcomes, we have used the empirical research to develop game development frameworks which enable matching of the game design process to key principles (e.g. children's rights and sustainable development goals) and, we are in the process of creating research-based schemes of work (wrap-around curricular materials which will be attached to the games) to build teacher capacity and skills in tackling GBV in schools.
Exploitation Route Our qualitative research will be used to inform gender policy, to improve professional practice, to increase access to justice for survivors and public education information. Our survey data will be used by partner institutions to update governments and civil society organisations and to inform policy and programming for child protection and child mental health services. Our game evaluation frameworks will be published as tools for the gaming industry to further prosocial gaming for the prevention of GBV.

Description Findings from qualitative research have been used to generate story lines and characterisations for prosocial computer games which will address sexual coercion in the context of child marriage in Uganda, violence against women in India, child sexual abuse in Jamaica and intimate partner violence among adolescents in the UK. Additionally, findings have been used to generate social media outputs for public engagement purposes. The emerging results of the surveys on the prevalence of child exposure to violence and its mental health impacts (carried out in all four countries) have, in the case of Uganda and Jamaica been released for governments and civil society organisations so that action can be taken to strengthen services for the prevention of self-harm and suicide.
