RHEA members Eva Vergaert, Sophie Withaeckx & Gily Coene will be editing a special issue of the Tijdschrift voor Genderstudies on the topic of 'Researching Intimate Partner Violence: Gender, intersectionality and policy-making'. Researchers are invited to submit an abstract (450 words) by 30 September 2020.
This special issue aims to bring together current research on experiences with IPV by victims, perpetrators, involved actors (social workers, health care workers, general practitioners, lawyers…). We welcome contributions that explore if and how insights from feminist and intersectional perspectives have impacted on policymaking and how they interact with other theoretical frameworks addressing IPV. We particularly focus on research and policymaking in and about Belgium and the Netherlands, but submissions may also discuss developments at international or European level that impact on the regional level. Articles may be written in Dutch or English.
