Defining and operationalizing ‘rural’ in the context of gender-based violence

Millan AbiNader of the School of Social Policy & Practice authored a book chapter on the definition and operationalization of rurality within the context of gender-based violence.

“Research on gender-based violence (GBV) across place has consistently demonstrated rural/urban differences in violence prevalence and risk …  Although the definition of rurality is central to this line of inquiry, how it should be operationalised continues to be debated among scholars.”
