The United Nations defines gender based violence as "violence that is
directed against a woman because she is a woman, or violence that affects
women disproportionately" and that it is "rooted in women's subordination".
Recent debate has challenged the gendered analysis of domestic abuse. As
researchers we require an understanding of the historical context and
theories that guide this work and to consider how we can effectively
contribute to the evidence base.
The Scottish GBV Research Network is hosting a half day event to provide an
opportunity for researchers to revisit these issues and to reflect on their
Dr Marsha Scott and Professor Lynn Jamieson will give brief presentations on
the theoretical framework and on reviewing evidence to stimulate group
discussion on how we can effectively contribute to the evidence base and
anticipate criticism of our work.
