Conference on Gender Based Violence

Kenyatta University in collaboration with the Liverpool VCT will be hosting the Conference on Gender Based Violence on the 1st to the 5th of August 2012. The conference will address four important  themes. The first theme is the structural issues which recognizes that the genesis of GBV resides in underlying norms and value systems which make it both necessary and legitimate thus subverting prevention and response efforts.  The second theme is Governance, policy and legislation which seeks to locate GBV within the national and state context and help to  identify the primary level of responsibility and obligations that illustrate responsiveness. The third issue is about research which underscores the paucity of research in the area and lastly the fouth theme is about practice which will focus on innovative and tailor made interventions. The information about the conference is found here while the info about the thematic areas is found here.
