Journal of Gender-Based Violence Launch Event
Wed 21 June 2017, 16:30 – 19:00 BST
This event celebrates the launch of the Journal of Gender-Based Violence.
The Journal of Gender-Based Violence (JGBV), is the first international journal based in Europe to show case the work of scholars across disciplinary and topic boundaries, and from a range of methodologies.
The journal acknowledges both the breadth of gender-based violence (GBV) and its links to gendered inequalities. It aims to continue to document the voices and experiences of victims and survivors of GBV, to publish work regarding those who perpetrate GBV and of the varied and complex social structures, inequalities and gender norms through which GBV is produced and sustained. The journal recognises the intersection of gender with other identities and power relations, such as ethnicity, nationality, sexuality, faith, disability and economic status.
JGBV will publish high quality papers that contribute to understanding of GBV, policy, and/or activism, on sexual violence, domestic abuse, ‘honour’-based violence, prostitution, trafficking and/or reproductive violence and abuse in a wide range of intimate, familial, community and societal contexts.
The editors invite interest from scholars working across the social sciences and related fields including social policy, sociology, politics, criminology, law, social psychology, development and economics, as well as disciplines allied to medicine, health and wellbeing.
The Journal of Gender-Based Violence is published by Policy Press on behalf of the Centre for Gender and Violence Research, University of Bristol.
Attendance at this event is free but you must register. Non-attendance (without cancellation) will be charged a £50 fee.
This launch event follows the Justice, Inequality & Gender Based Violence Conference.
The conference provides an opportunity to hear about the emerging findings from the research, of direct interest to practitioners working in different fields related to GBV, policy makers, and academics.
