Preventing Sexual Violence 2016 Call For Papers

Preventing Sexual Violence Conference Graphic 2 The Preventing Sexual Violence Conference 2016 will be taking place on 25 August. This one-day conference aims to bring together an understanding of what we already know and what we can learn when attempting to prevent sexual violence.

We hope to explore this concept from a range of perspectives, and therefore invite practitioners and academics with specialist knowledge to the conference. We aim to foster a dialogue between those researching and working with both perpetrators and victims of sexual violence, providing greater networking opportunities and a platform for knowledge exchange.

The conference organisers invite you to submit abstracts of no more than 250 words. Abstracts will be reviewed and graded for inclusion within either the oral presentation or poster sessions at the conference.

We welcome submissions from established and early career academics, current PhD students and those with frontline practitioner experience. The deadline for submissions is Friday 27 May. Authors will be notified by Friday 3 June.

We hope to encourage submissions from the following areas (list is not exhaustive):

  • Domestic violence
  • Child sexual exploitation
  • Online sexual violence
  • Exploitation of sex workers
  • Juvenile perpetrators and victims
  • Violence perpetrated against and by people with intellectual disability
  • Female perpetrators
  • Transgender sexual violence
  • Sexual violence and the media
  • Sexual violence and the family
