Inspiring Domestic Violence Policies and Practices
THE CONFERENCE IS OVER
Thank you to everyone who participated!
Dates: June 2nd and 3rd, 2021
Location: Video conference
The Feminist Anti-Violence Research Collective (FemAnVi) was delighted to organize our 4rd international bilingual* conference entitled Inspiring Domestic Violence Policies and Practices: International Perspectives, which will be held virtually on June 2nd and 3rd, 2021.
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 conference’s organizing committee is hoping 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.
*Simultaneous interpretation was available in French and English.
