The purpose of the consultancy is to conduct a study on the mind of perpetrator to examine why people commit gender based violence crime. This is very important in the ongoing debate of how GBV offences should be handled and prevented.
The causes of crime are complex. Most people today accept that poverty, parental neglect, low self-esteem, alcohol and drug abuse are all connected in explaining why people commit crimes. Some people are simply at greater risk of becoming offenders because of the circumstances into which they are born. In some instances, society tendsto focus on individual weakness or lack of ‘values’ as the reason why people commit crimes. Ultimately if someone chooses to commit a crime, that is their responsibility. If caught, the individual should pay the consequences. Individualists feel that society needs clearer rules and strong punishments to minimise criminal behaviour. If punishments were stronger and the police and the courts had more powers, there would be less crime.
The study will seek to assess the reasons for the commission of gender based violence offences.  The study will provide information about the attitude and behaviour of GBV perpetrators that have contributed to the increase in the prevalence levels of GBV cases.
The study should be conducted in July – September, 2016.
