Relationship law, A child right perspective

Tuesday 13 June 2018 • 12.30pm to 1.30pm

CRFR meeting room, 23 Buccleuch Place, Edinburgh

Stine Jørgensen, PhD, Associate professor, University of Copenhagen

Meaningful relationships form the well being of individuals. For children parents the family are given a priori legal significance. The legal framing of the family as a fundamental structure tend to overshadow other meaningful relations that are important in the everyday life of children. The presentation will look into how other meaningful relations can be given legal significance.


Preventative socialisation of gender-based violence

Tuesday 26 June 2018 • 12.30pm to 1.30pm

CRFR meeting room, 23 Buccleuch Place, Edinburgh

Patricia Melgar, Professor, University of Girona, Spain

Patricia’s presentation will focus on an approach to the analysis of violence against women called the ‘preventative socialisation of gender-based violence’. Rooted in recent developments in contemporary sociological, educational and anthropological theories – results obtained in studies conducted with teenagers, university students and battered women about their socialisation processes will be presented, highlighting the potential connection this has to gender-based violence.

The central contribution of these studies encompasses the idea that there are different socialisation processes which might motivate adolescents to feel attracted to individuals whose values and behavior tend to be violent, thus leading to unequal or even violent relationships.
