Keynote address at European Conference on Domestic Violence

2 April 2020 by Jane Freedman
Jane Freedman gave a keynote address on Gender-based violence, migration and refugees, at the ECDV Conference in Oslo, Norway in September 2019.

Women migrants and refugees are vulnerable to violence at all stages of their journey, from the country of origin to the country of destination. This vulnerability should not be attributed to any essential gendered characteristics, but is rather the result of a series of structural and systemic factors including migration and refugee policies, structures of economic inequality etc. This presentation will analyse the causes of these women’s vulnerabilities to violence and will propose solutions for violence prevention and support for victims.
