Tackling Technology-Facilitated Violence


Mardi 25 mai et mercredi 26 mai 2021
à 16 h 00 HE



Présentation (en anglais seulement)

Technology-facilitated violence (TFV) is an expansive, dynamic and rapidly evolving harm. It has been defined by Bailey and Mathen as "a spectrum of behaviours carried out at least in some part through digital communications technologies, including actions that cause physical or psychological harm”. How do we understand the problem? What is our vantage point? What solutions are offered and how will they impact affected individuals and communities differently?

The Tackling Technology-Facilitated Violence conference brings together international scholars, activists, and community organizations to share their work, ideas, and experiences in tackling tech-facilitated violence (TFV), broadly construed. Part of the ambition behind the project is to shift the typically narrow focus of policy discussions around gender-based TFV by recognizing intersecting systems of oppression, racial injustice, and the realities of structural and state-based tech-facilitated violence.


Following the two pre-events “Technology-Facilitated Violence: Thinking Intersectionally” and “Deplatforming Misogyny”, the conference will include an invite-only workshop as well as two public events:
