Collective Solutions for Catalyzing Change to Address Technology-Facilitated Gender-Based Violence: An interactive workshop

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Technology-facilitated gender-based violence (GBV) is simultaneously a global and intensely local phenomenon. Technology allows for connection – and violence – to transcend geographical space. At the same time, the catalysts, impacts, and manifestations of violence are informed by relationships, culture, and gender norms. This makes technology-facilitated GBV a many-headed hydra that is difficult to define and identify, much less address and prevent. The International Center for Research on Women (ICRW) has developed a definition and conceptual framework for technology-facilitated GBV, based on an extensive literature review and formative research with global experts and those who have experienced it in Uganda and India. For our session, we propose an interactive workshop that will engage participants to learn about the issue and begin to think about actionable next steps for addressing it. In the first half of the workshop, we will introduce to this issue and our findings so far. We will share our definition and conceptual framework, which will allow participants to build their vocabulary around this issue. In the second half, we will foster rich discussions in small groups around potential solutions.
