RCNI recommend three core principals to underline all scoping group recommendations:
The scoping group should strive for recommendations that put in place measures and frameworks that are repeatable, embedded and supported into the future.
The Scoping group recommendations should keep to the fore that sexual violence is a cultural and systemic phenomenon that often resists generic measurements and methodologies . Sexual violence data infrastructure must be consciously specialist in order to measure sexual violence accurately.
The scoping group recommendations should address sexual violence as a whole and meet the international obligation of making all data available for policy formation in the most optimum manner rather than become confined to problem solving short term ‘as is’ matters.
