Incidence, Impact, Reporting & Awareness of Incest in India
Research was started by Supreet Dhiman to fulfil partial requirements for the Post Graduate Diploma in Human Rights and Duties at Panjab University Chandigarh. Purpose of the research is to establish the incidence and frequency of incest abuse, its impact on the victim/survivor, understand the behavioural pattern of the perpetrator/abuser and how the families behave. We are also trying to establish the role of media and legal provisions directly connected with incest abuse.

The pilot phase led to formation of End Incest Trust, which is striving for a world free of incest abuse through comprehensive awareness initiatives, collaborative planning, policy research, advocacy and community action.
The research is being conducted using an online questionnaire ensuring anonymity of the respondent and confidentiality of the data collected.

Who can participate:
• Anyone Indian living anywhere in India can participate.
• NRIs who lived in India for over 10 years
• You can participate even if you have never been sexually abused by a family member.
• We invite people of all genders and gender orientation to participate
• If someone can't read, you can read out the questions and fill answers on their behalf.

Outcome of the Questionnaire:
