This course deals with gendered violence as a theoretical and policy issue. Taking departure from a variety of feminist and intersectional approaches the course will address questions such as: What is violence? How can violence be gendered? What are the relationships between violence, gender and power? How can gender-based violence be understood, addressed and responded to? How are notions of gender equality and violence linked?
