This report presents research findings on the impacts of a nonviolent communication program conducted in Bangladesh, the Maldives, and Sri Lanka, between September and December 2021. As detailed in the following pages, findings draw on both quantitative survey data and qualitative data in the form of semi-structured interviews with participants and notes from program sessions. We discuss our methodology, and then present our findings regarding the program’s impact on participants’ attitudes and beliefs, behaviors, and knowledge acquisition.

Our evaluation was designed to match program aims, and thus focuses in particular on whether nonviolent communication skills were imparted to program participants, and whether this in turn led to improvements in gender equality and social cohesion.
