Description

The Human Rights Law Centre, in support of the 16 Day of Activism against Gender-based Violence (GBV) and of Nottingham-based charity Equation, is organising a panel discussion on GBV to raise awareness about the issue and the effect changing policies have on victims. The discussion will also address actions taken to combat GBV locally.

The panel will be chaired by Professor Aoife Nolan, Co-Director of the Rights and Justice Research Priority Area and Professor of International Human Rights Law, and speakers on the panel are:

  • Ms Jane Lewis - Community Safety Strategy Manager (Domestic and Sexual Violence Strategic Lead), Nottingham Crime and Drugs Partnership
  • Dr Julie McGarry - Associate Professor, Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences, Chair of the Domestic Violence and Abuse Integrated Research Group
  • Dr Lyndsey Harris - Assistant Professor in Criminology, Faculty of Social Sciences, Expert on survivors of abuse with complex needs

The 16 Days of Activism against GBV campaign runs every year from 25 November, the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, until 10 December, Human Rights Day. The campaign aims to raise awareness of and speak out against violence against women and girls around the world to effect change.

Admission is free but RSVP is required. Please register to attend.
