The objective of this project is to investigate possible relations between intimate partner violence, gender, power, equality at the level of the intimate partner relationships as well as on a societal level. This project aims to provide new research and understandings on gender, family, everyday life and gender equality.
The primary objectives include:
•How do we comprehend violence and its relations to power and structures of opportunity on the couple level as well as a societal level ?
•What does gender and power mean in an intimate relationship and how is violence experienced and what are the consequences of violence on the victims’ quality of life and their ability to act.
•How is intimate partner violence understood in light of research on gender, family, everyday life and equality?
This project is part of the research programme on violence in close relationships conducted by NKVTS 2014-2019, which is financed by the Ministry of Justice and Public Security.
