Date: June 2nd and 3rd 2021
Location: video conference
The Feminist Anti-Violence Research Collective invites you to their 4th international conference titled “Inspiring Policies and Practices in domestic violence: International Perspectives”!
In recent years, the problem of domestic violence has occupied an important space in the public sphere, increasing in visibility over the past few months due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the recent wave of femicides in Quebec. Faced with this phenomenon, policy makers and stakeholders are tasked with determining the best strategies to put in place, in order to ensure the security of victims, to hold violent partners accountable and more generally, to prevent domestic violence.
In this context, the conferences organising committee hoped to shine a light on inspiring policies and practices occurring both within Canada and across the world, in order to fuel the further development of new policies and practices in this area.
