Members of the None in Three team from all four of our study countries gathered recently in Doha for the ISPCAN International Congress Qatar 2020.
Rukmini Banerjee (India), Karyl Powell-Booth (Jamaica), Esther Nanfuka (Uganda) and Gill Kirkman (UK) delivered a symposium together on ‘The role of childhood abuse in the lives of adult survivors of different forms of gender-based violence: perspectives from Jamaica, India, Uganda and the UK’.
This included specific findings from each of our study countries:
India – How patriarchal traditions affect children’s experience of gender-based violence in India
Jamaica – The role of childhood sexual abuse in the lives of adult survivors: accounts from Jamaican survivors of child sexual abuse
Uganda – The experience of child marriage in Uganda
The UK – The cycle of violence/victimisation in intimate partner violence in the UK
Our researchers welcomed the opportunity to meet face-to-face and talk about our global work as a research centre. It also proved invaluable for them to meet with professionals from across the world who are working to solve the crisis of child protection.
