Institutional Analysis is a method of evaluating how institutions and systems operate, and therefore how effective they are at meeting the needs of the people they serve. This type of work helps systems and advocates to be responsive to what survivors need, rather than forcing them to fit into system-built frameworks.
By building upon decades of experience (and learning from missteps in the past), our evaluation and recommendations can help the gender-based violence world see more long-term justice.
We concentrate our work in higher education and civil and criminal legal systems but we are available to work with anyone who is looking for assistance with systems-level, survivor-centered design.
In 2022, BWJP will apply our institutional analysis framework to partner with survivors and advocates against domestic and gun violence in four communities: Ypsilanti, MI, Minneapolis, MN, Cleveland, OH, and Menomonie, WI. We will build and present training on how to start community assessments and expand access to courts through institutional analysis.
Please contact our team below to start a community assessment or an institutional analysis.
