The Violence Project: 13th Global Meeting
Thursday 5th May – Saturday 7th May 2016
Prague, Czech Republic
Violence in many forms surrounds us all no matter where we live or work and its impact on our lives can be minimal or catastrophic. By its very nature it will have a practical effect on those whom it touches, yet not everyone will experience the same types of violence or react in the same way. It is this diversity and topicality which we would like to explore in greater depth, particularly this year, those aspects which can be classed as domestic abuse or violence, as it affects the individual, whether that be a person, a family, or a unit such as a company or other specified group.
At its basic concept, domestic violence, which is sometimes referred to as domestic abuse, partner abuse, intimate partner violence, battering or family violence is a pattern of behaviour which involves violence or other abuse by one person in a domestic context against another. It may occur within, but is not confined to, marriage, cohabitation, forced marriage, friendship and familial relationships, and can involve sibling, parental, grandparent, heterosexual or same-sex relationships. It takes various forms, including physical abuse, emotional, verbal, economic and sexual abuse, which may extend to rape. Domestic violence over a period of time may lead to homicide.
