Event description

Description

The conference will showcase the findings from our recently completed research project on ‘Justice, Inequality and Gender Based Violence’. The research has looked at how ‘justice’ is understood, sought, and experienced by a wide range of victims/survivors of sexual, domestic and ‘honour-based’ violence. We have been asking:

  1. How do victim/survivors experience and perceive ‘justice’ (whether formal or informal – e.g. criminal, civil, alternative and faith based justice)?
  2. How does inequality affect access to support pathways and trajectories through the justice systems?
  3. How are notions of resistance and empowerment linked to notions of justice and access to justice?
  4. How do practitioners themselves perceive notions of ‘justice’ whether enacted through formal or informal routes.
  5. What would a truly victim focused justice agenda for gender based violence look like?

The conference will include sessions on:

  • What do victim/survivors see as justice.
  • Procedural justice
  • Faith based justice
  • Rape and domestic violence victims and the criminal justice system
  • BME survivors and justice
  • Financial abuse and justice
  • The impact of children on adult survivor’s experience of justice

The research was carried out by a team from the Universities of Bristol, Cardiff and West of England (Marianne Hester [PI], Amanda Robinson, Duncan McPhee, Emma Williamson, Nadia Aghtaie, Geetanjali Gangoli, Sarah-Jane Walker, Lis Bates, Andrea, Matolcsi, Natasha Mulvihill and William Turner), and involved extensive literature reviews, meta-analysis of existing criminal justice and GBV datasets, and interviews with a large sample of victims-survivors and practitioners.


THE CONFERENCE IS FREE, BUT REGISTRATION IS ESSENTIAL.
