Webinar | Economic Perspectives on Domestic Violence

The COVID-19 pandemic and the resulting lockdown restrictions have amplified the academic and policy interest in the causes and consequences of domestic violence. With this in mind, the FREE Network invites academic papers to an online workshop focused on "Economic perspectives on domestic violence".

The workshop will be organised as part of the Forum for Research on Gender Economics (FROGEE) supported by the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida), and aims to combine papers on general aspects of domestic violence as well as contributions more specifically devoted to the consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic on the issue.

Several questions related to domestic violence will be discussed, such as the relevance of economic factors, the importance of the legal system, what is the best way to measure intimate partner violence and how the lockdowns have affected domestic violence in different place worldwide! Sign up to learn more.

It is the next online webinar in the field of gender, which will take place on 24 September 2020. The webinar will combine presentations of academic papers focused on issues related to different forms of domestic violence which have increased significantly during the COVID-19 pandemic.


Please register HERE or in the Eventbrite webpage or application. Please register by midday 23 September (CET). A link to the webinar will be sent to you 4-5 hours ahead of the start of the webinar. We look forward to connecting with you for the webinar!
