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 dimensions of war. Against this background, the Stockholm Institute of Transition Economics (SITE) together with the Centre for Economic Analysis (CenEA) and the FREE Network will host a hybrid conference on 11 May 2022 focused on ‘Economic and social context of domestic violence’ 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 and the entire event streamed online via the Zoom platform.
