While the COVID-19 pandemic has amplified the academic and policy interest in the causes and consequences of domestic violence, the Russian invasion of Ukraine has tragically spotlighted the gender dimension of war. Against this background, the Stockholm Institute of Transition Economics (SITE) together with the Centre for Economic Analysis (CenEA) and the FREE Network invite to join the hybrid conference “Economic and social context of domestic violence”.
Dimensions of Gender-based Violence in Military Conflicts
The conference will take place on 11 May 2022 with a special panel session on “Dimensions of gender-based violence in military conflicts”. Rigorous analysis is needed for understanding not only the scale of domestic and gender-based violence in extraordinary circumstances – such as the pandemic or war – but also their broader socio-economic determinants in regular times, how they are perceived and what policies and regulations can limit their incidence.
The conference will combine presentations of academic papers and contributions from policy makers. The keynote address will be given by Professor Bilge Erten (Northeastern University) and the conference is planned as a hybrid event with several sessions held at the Stockholm School of Economics in Stockholm, Sweden (SSE).
