Press Releases

The FATIMA partnership is happy to announce that the project's conference will take place in 26-27 April 2016 at Örebro University, Sweden. The title of the event is"Violence, Honour and Revolution: Towards Alternative Gender Equality Futures" and will include an international agenda. 

The conference will be dedicated to violence, honour, and the hope for gender equality futures free from violence and oppression. The event is set to last for two days and explore a range of methods and strategies to achieve gender equality futures by transcending the gaps between research, policy and practice and placing activism at the center of events. In order to discuss the ever so pressing issues and concepts of violence against woman and honour, a number of tools for knowledge transfer will be used: traditional academic lectures, experienced based testimonials, moderated plenary discussion, practice research, film-making and participatory workshops lead by a team of academics and activists.

The goal of the conference is to create a forum for bringing together activists, NGOs, politicians and academia to share their experiences in the above mentioned areas. Guests of honour will be dr Nawal El Saadawi and Buthina Canaan Khoury.
