AbstractWorldwide, approximately 1 in 3 women have experience physical or sexual violence imparted by an intimate partner (WHO 2013). Intimate partner violence (IPV) is a complex phenomenon, that can be prompted by a variety of psychological and economic factors relating to the woman, her partner, and their community. A growing number of policies seek to economically empower women, which could affect these factors and result in either increased or decreased IPV. Understanding the determinants of IPV can help policymakers design interventions that are less likely to lead to IPV or identify women at high risk of IPV upon receipt of an intervention or, more generally, a change in economic opportunities.
