The conference will offer great opportunities for promoting interdisciplinary and multi-professional cooperation.
The IPVI 2020 has already gained interest in many countries and within different disciplines. In order to reach even more researchers and experts, we have decided to continue Call for papers & sessions until December 31st, 2019. So you’ll still have time to submit your own paper or session proposal. Further, you will have time to spread the information about the Conference to your contacts and networks – for that please find attached a light information leaflet for you to post eg. in your institution’s bulletin board.

Conference’s aim is to bring together researchers and experts on interpersonal violence in the fields of social and legal studies, history, cultural research, psychology, philosophy, political science and health care or from any relevant discipline.
