19‐ 20 February 2018 - KANTL – The Royal Academy of Dutch Language and Literature Ghent, Belgium.
A two‐day workshop organised by ANSER – Academic Network for Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights Policy & INSEP – International Network for Sexual Ethics and Politics

Hoe herken je signalen en symptomen van seksueel geweld? Wat is een goede opvang van slachtoffers van seksueel geweld? Hoe kan je het met hen bespreken? Welke instrumenten en richtlijnen bestaan er al en kan je toepassen? Deze en vele andere vragen worden in deze interactieve vorming aangekaart.

June 2nd of each year, is worldwide celebrated as International Sex Workers Day. It honours sex workers and recognises their often exploited working conditions.

1 in 5 women (and also 1 in 5 men) suffer from depression and/or fear during pregnancy and childbirth.

There has always been a sense that the academy has been no less a space for sexual harassment than any other organisations and institutions, even against the championing of inclusion and progressive gender politics. This one-day workshop seeks to outline the problem, look at some contemporary policy and practice responses and then explore some strategies for prevention and change.

On Monday and Tuesday 27-28th of February, experts on female genital mutilation will gather at the international symposium on “Challenges in estimating the prevalence of female genital mutilation (FGM) in the European Union and recommendations for future estimations”. The symposium concludes the international research project "FGM-PREV". This project was a cooperation between ICRH (Ghent University, Belgium), INED (France) and BICOCCA (Universita’ degli studi di Milano, Italy) and funded by the DAPHNE programme of the European Union.

Today the Gender-Based Violence Recovery Centre (GBVRC), Mombasa Kenya, a centre for victims of gender-based violence, received the label of the UNESCO Chair Sexual Health & Human Rights. During a press conference in Paris the centre was honoured for promoting sexual health en human rights in challenging contexts.
