Men’s and Women’s Relations in Coercive Settings - Summer Institute

As part of the Conjugal Slavery in War project, the Refugee Law Project, in collaboration with York University and University of British Columbia, is pleased to be hosting a Summer Institute in Kampala in the coming week.

Entitled “Men’s and Women’s Relations in Coercive Settings”, the Summer Institute seeks to move beyond gendered victim-perpetrator terminology, and to bring into consideration how both women and men experience the complex relationships that are established in contexts in which it is often assumed that meaningful relationships are an impossibility. This raises conceptual challenges around definitions of coercion and consent, and practical issues related to how best to support returnees in their return and reintegration processes.

 The Summer Institute is an INVITATION ONLY event, but we look forward to sharing periodic updates on our social media pages (Twitter, Facebook). Download Poster
