The Centre for Gender Studies of Panteion University with the collaboration of RIKK – Institute for Gender, Equality and Difference of University of Iceland and the Center for Gender Research of the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) invites you to the 2nd Online Policy Discussion Panel entitled “Gender-based violence during COVID-19: Challenges and Responses” for the project “ProGender: A Digital Hub on Gender, the Covid-19 Crisis and its Aftermath”, funded by the EEA Grants.
While lockdowns and stay-at-home orders may be crucial in limiting and preventing the spread of COVID-19, they also have a devastating impact on women and girls living with the risk of gender-based violence, as many of the factors that trigger or perpetuate violence against women and girls are compounded by preventive confinement measures.
