ARE VICTIMS OF DOMESTIC VIOLENCE STILL PROTECTED BY THE INSTITUTIONS? During corona lockdown, safety planning is even more complicated for survivors of intimate-partner violence. In previous episodes, you learned what is (and what’s not) sexual violence, challenges in times of covid-19 pandemics, and how was Brianna’s professional experience of working with victims of rape. In this last episode of this series about gender-based violence, you fill hear:

 

  1. Are the institutions failing in supporting victims of sexual violence during the covid-19 pandemics? Can victims count on health care, courts, jails as under normal times?
  2. Are perpetrators of these crimes less likely to be detained?
  3. How can we as a community help victims with their safety planning strategies?
  4. What about the kids that are witnessing or targets of domestic violence?
  5. How does financial stress caused by the global economic crisis contribute to the rise of intimate-partner violence and unhealthy relationship dynamics? 

 

Lucia Klestincova, your host of Lights on Europe interviews Brianna Hertford, who spent 6 years as an advocate for survivors of sexual and gender-based violence in the United States. She has been a counselor for adults and children experiencing violence, a medical advocate for survivors of sexual assault, and has worked in emergency shelters. She currently works with a Brussels-based NGO that advocates for human rights at a political level. She manages two programs: women’s rights and gender equality; and LGBTQI people and human rights. Brianna has a MA in International Migration with a specialization in Human Rights Law from the University of Kent’s Brussels School of International Studies, and a BS in Psychology from Northeastern University.

RISE OF DOMESTIC VIOLENCE DURING COVID-19 LOCKDOWN is a fact. What are the triggers? How to get out when normal safety planning is impossible? Here’s the second interview out of a series of expert conversations about gender-based violence in times of corona pandemic. 

 

In this episode, we discuss and demystify:  

  1. Concrete examples of what’s happening behind the closed doors
  2. Safety planning strategies
  3. Public policy innovation when you can’t fully rely on the justice or health care system
  4. Social support you can count on even during the pandemics crisis
  5. How can citizens, neighbours, family and friends help victims and survivors of domestic violence 

 

Check out also the previous episode with Brianna - we discuss more broadly what is sexual and intimate-partner violence. You’ll hear an intro into identifying the control and power dynamics in a toxic relationship, basic concepts of safety planning and trauma healing. We also wonder whether America and Europe differ in how they stigmatise victims of rape.

EXPERIENCING SEXUAL AND DOMESTIC VIOLENCE IN A TOXIC RELATIONSHIP tortures too many many women and men in the European Union and the USA. Even more during COVID-19 pandemics.

As you probably know, sexual violence occurs all around the world. Although in most countries there has been little research conducted on the problem, available data suggest that in some countries nearly one in four women may experience sexual violence by an intimate partner, and up to one-third of adolescent girls report their first sexual experience as being forced.

Asi máloktorý úradník sa v rámci práce stretáva s Veronikou Cifrovou Ostrihoňovou a zháňa nových influencerov na tik-toku. Asi máloktorý kreatívec či fashion-bloger by veril, že dokáže slobodne vyjadriť svoj talent v centre európskej byrokracie. Ak ste minulý rok sledovali kampaň vyzývajúcu k voľbám do Európskeho parlamentu, možno ste dostávali newsletter od istej Petry.

Dnes sa táto Petra, Petra Rusinová, zhovára s Luciou Kleštincovou o tom, ako sa z Liptova a štúdia krajčírstva dostala cez Luxemburg do európskych inštitúcií. Zistíte, ako vznikajú spolupráce Európskeho parlamentu s influencermi, ako sa k nim môžete pridať a či vám pritom zostane čas a priestor aj na vlastnú kreativitu.

“Murder of Jan Kuciak is a tragedy but it also prompted an unprecedented awareness in a generation that has taken the European integration for granted. We need to nurture this civic awakening even further.” This is not just a story of Slovakia. People all around Europe embrace a greater responsibility for holding their politicians accountable if trust and respect for human dignity are lost.

Alberto Alemanno and his team at The Good Lobby empower citizens to speak up and inform policy decisions at all levels. Listen to his interview with Lucia Klestincova to hear the story of how he decided to disrupt the traditional advocacy industry, demystify the lobbying process and support citizens with tools needed to embrace their democratic power. He also shares his views on where is the dividing line between the neutrality of a public servant and their right for civic activism; and how to awaken activism among citizens disillusioned with the current state of democracy.
