PRIO, "Actors or Victims? Understanding Political Violence Targeting Women", Seminar

Oslo Governance Centre

Event date 16 Oct '19 12:00 - 13:00
Event location PRIO • Hausmanns gate 3, Oslo, Norway

This seminar presents novel data on political violence targeting women and discusses what these findings mean, both for Norway’s efforts in the United Nations on protection and on women’s participation in peace processes, and for research on political violence.


Results from new data from the Armed Conflict Location & Event Data Project (ACLED), in partnership with the Strauss Center at the University of Texas at Austin, point to the need to differentiate between diverse repertoires of political violence and that current assumptions about vulnerability need to become more nuanced.


Roudabeh Kishi, Research Director, Armed Conflict Location & Event Data Project (ACLED) will present the new data. After there will be a panel discussion.
