Banteay Srei was a leading partner in the AusAID funded Triple Jeopardy research project, exploring violence against women with disabilities in Cambodia.
Women with disabilities experience much higher levels of violence around the world than women without disabilities. They suffer worse physical and mental health outcomes as a consequence of violence, and are at increased risk of experiencing high levels of stigma, discrimination and other rights violations. Yet little precise disability- and sex-disaggregated data on interpersonal violence exists for the Asia-Pacific region. Triple Jeopardy, a three-year research project, sought to provide comparative information about the lives of women with disabilities and those without in Cambodia.
