Présentation

Join us for a virtual conversation on technology-facilitated violence with Nasreen Rajani, Hawa Mire, and Pam Hrick.

Panellists will discuss the impacts of technology-facilitated violence on equality seeking groups and explore the need for multi-faceted responses grounded in experiences of intersecting systems of oppression that move beyond criminal law reform and recognize the role played by individuals, communities, governments, and industry both in fostering and responding to technology-facilitated violence.

This panel is the first in a series leading up to the “Tackling Technology Facilitated Violence” conference. Osgoode Hall Law School at York University and the University of Ottawa, Faculty of Law will host this virtual conference in May 2021.
