Enquire: Contribute to Knowledge and Research

The Global Observatory for Gender Equality and Sport, Physical Activity and Physical Education (PEPAS) engages with researchers and policy makers to facilitate the mobilization and use of data, research, and evidence to inform decision-making.

Strong, clear and relatable data and research are crucial for influencing policy and improving outcomes for gender equality around the world. The MINEPS VII outcome documents highlight the urgent need for accessible data and research, especially as countries focus on PEPAS. Unfortunately, not all countries have consistent access to timely and relevant research and evidence on physical education, physical activity, and sport to guide policies and action.

Contribute to our Policy Brief Series

The Global Observatory Policy Brief Series aims to provide concise overview of research and research-based recommendations to policy actors across government and sport governance bodies. Policy Briefs provide research-based analysis and recommendations on Gender Based Violence against Women and Girls in PEPAS. Submissions are welcome from researchers across various disciplines including sociology, economics, political science, law, and sport science, and from around the world.

Engage: Directory of Expertise and Contributor Network

Global Directory of Expertise: Knowledge Institutions and Initiatives

The Global Directory of Sport Knowledge Institutions and Initiatives aims to connect expertise working in knowledge mobilization, sharing, and use. Knowledge Institutions and Initiatives (KII) exist in diverse formats including research centres, University departments, research groups, think tanks, projects, networks, and NGOs among others. KIIs play an important role in providing knowledge, generating questions, and analyses that are valuable to research, policy, and practice. Centralising information will contribute to enhancing access and connection among institutions and stakeholders.

The Directory is targeted at users looking for research services, networks to join, conference speakers, advisers and consultants, as well as research outputs on specific topics. It will also be valuable in identifying expertise in specified geographic regions. Staff of policy making institutions, academic actors, researchers, safe sport activists, and sport practitioner organizations may find this Directory valuable.

Contribute to the Directory

For this first edition of the Directory, we invite submissions on knowledge institutions that are working within the context of PE, Physical Activity, and Sport (PEPAS) on themes that broadly or specifically relate to: Gender Based Violence, Violence against Women and Girls, Interpersonal Violence, Non-Accidental Violence, Safeguarding.
