According to the World Health Organization, one out of three women in the world suffers from gender-based violence. Issue 117 of Revista CIDOB investigates international roots, responses, and patterns of violence against women. International conflict generates both new forms of violence and new forms of international law demanding justice. All forms of violence, including domestic violence, are influenced by patterns of international political economy and corresponding modes of social change –and global organizations respond with new models of public policy and social intervention networks. International migration greatly increases vulnerability to gender violence, and the involvement of intergovernmental organizations and NGOs. Meanwhile, transnational movements and media mobilizations protest and foment culture change in the face of femicide and sexual violence in the home and street alike.
Among others, contributions will be welcomed that offer original empirical and theoretical work on:
a) Gender violence, conflict, and war crimes;
c) Public policies and global campaigns;
d) International assistance and social change programs.
Proposals will be accepted in Spanish and English.
