The 4th European Conference on Domestic Violence (13 - 15 September 2021 Ljubljana, Slovenia).

The aim of the conference is to bring together researchers, academics, students, professionals, practitioners and policy-makers from Europe and further afield to share and build knowledge and experience on a wide range of issues concerning domestic violence. The ECDV views domestic violence as encompassing a range of different types of gender-based violence and abuse, among others including intimate partner violence, stalking, honour-based violence and elderly abuse. The Conference is rooted in an ecological understanding of domestic violence while recognising the primary role of gender as a significant factor both causing and sustaining abuse and violence.
