About

The Sex, Gender, Violence programme of the University of Aberdeen investigates how gendered violence arises, is quelled, and our response to it, during and in the aftermath of violent conflict. Using the theories and practices of sex/gender and post-war recovery, the course brings into focus the nuances of development, reconciliation and the psychological implications of exposure to violence.

Overview

At a Glance

The Europe Institute for Gender Equality suggests that gender based violence 'constitutes a breach of the fundamental right to life, liberty, security, dignity, equality between women and men, non-discrimination and physical and mental integrity.' It tries to categorise acts of violence as domestic, harassment, rape, customary traditional practises in some cultures trafficking, forced prostitution, violations of human rights, forced pregnancy, forced sterilisation, forced abortion and more.

The Sex, Gender, Violence programme of the University of Aberdeen provides you with a contemporary critical approach to this subject.
