Sommer-Symposium



6th - 7th July 2017
Reconsidering gender-based violence in the context of displacement and migration


Convened by Göttingen Centre for Gender Studies (GCG)

Location: Paulinerkirche, Historisches Gebäude (Historical Building), Vortragsraum, (Lecture Hall), Papendiek 14, 37073 Göttingen




This symposium will reconsider gender-based violence in the context of internal displacement and international migration across different regional and cultural contexts. Central to our analysis of gender-based violence will be to caution against reproducing stereotypes of victimhood and marginalisation. Instead, we are interested in exploring the role of power in different forms of gender violence, as well as scrutinising the complex inequalities that form the basis of victims? lives through an intersectional approach to gender violence.
Among other topics, we will discuss the following: 1) state violence and the violent effects of border regimes, 2) masculinities and gender violence, 3) violence against LGBT populations and displacement, 4) processes of institutionalisation and professionalisation of violence in transit migration, 5) culturalisation and instrumentalisation of gender violence in policy-making contexts.
