Gender-Based Violence

Perspectives from Brazil and Ireland
5-7 February 2020 | Limerick - Ireland

01 Welcome

 
This conference will consider the legal response to gender-based violence in the jurisdictions of Ireland and Brazil. Focusing in particular on domestic abuse, speakers from Ireland and Brazil will consider both criminal justice and civil law responses to violence in intimate and family relationships. Considering the approaches to gender-based and domestic violence in both jurisdictions affords an  opportunity to explore the challenges in preventing and responding to abuse in intimate relationships and to engage in a knowledge exchange in order to develop best practice responses. The event will be hosted by the Centre for Crime, Justice & Victim Studies in the School of Law at the University of Limerick. The organisers are Dr Luiz Gomes (visiting lecturer at the School of Law, University of Limerick) and Dr Susan Leahy (co-director, Centre for Crime, Justice & Victim Studies).
