Sexual and Gender-Based Violence in Sri Lanka: An analysis of the available Literature & Annotated Bibliography

The subject of SGBV in Sri Lanka has interested researchers for a long time.1 Most research has been done at sub-national or local level, focusing on specific aspects of the issue or targeting selected sub populations or community groups, and often hospital based. However, there is a dearth of national-level data.

The purpose of this literature review is to make available the prevalence and accessible research evidence on SGBV in Sri Lanka. It is expected that this document will be a collection of information for future researchers to use.
