On the second day, Prof. Liz Kelly presented the transnational foundations for ethical practice in interventions against violence. This talk was followed by a panel on interventions against trafficking for sexual exploitation conducted by Dr. Vera Silva. Prof. Maria José Magalhães then presented on postcolonial feminism and intersectionality in interventions against violence. Finally, Dr. Raquel Felgueiras concluded the event with a presentation on the visual narratives that stemmed from the creative workshops that she and Prof. Angélica Lima Cruz conducted with survivors of violence.
