Dear Researcher,

The Genders and Sexualities Research Group at Limerick Institute of Technology in collaboration with Haven Horizons, a national NGO focused on the primary prevention of relationship abuse, have received funding from the Irish Research Council to address the need to make gender-based abuse research more coherent, connected, engaged and impactful.   

Our project is called ‘Enhancing Engaged Research Partnerships and Research Translation in the field of Gender-Based Abuse’. 

We wish to identify gender-based abuse research and researchers in Ireland. A website will host a database of researchers and research topics. It will also facilitate networking opportunities for national and international researchers seeking to develop partnerships for future gender-based abuse collaborative proposals and research projects.  

We are attaching a short survey (4 minutes) to collect the information.  You are not obliged to complete this survey. You can stop completing it at any time during the process with no negative consequences.  The survey can be completed anonymously. 

At the end of the survey, we ask if you would like to have your name and field of research listed on the database, have a profile with your professional details on the website, and if you would like to be kept informed about the project activities.  No details will be published without your prior consent.  

We would be most grateful if you could complete the survey and circulate it to anyone in your institution or organisation who is interested in or is researching topics relating to gender-based abuse. 


Kind regards, 

Madeine Mc Aleer  

Research and Development Director, Haven Horizons
