One of our CEINAV PIs, Maria José Magalhães, was deeply involved into hosting the 2nd European Conference on Domestiv Violence this year. From 6th to 9th September 2017 the Faculty of Psychology and Education Sciences of the University of Porto welcomed researchers from around the world to share experiences and research interest. In more than a hundred different parallel sessions there were more than 400 presentations with research focusing on Domestic / Interpersonal Violence, Sexual Violence, Victim Support, Risk Assessment, Prevention, Work with perpetrators, Media representation, Justice System, Health System, Femicide and many more. Additionally there were workshops and a poster session.

Keynotes were delivered by Marianne Hester, Carolina Överlien, Walter S. DeKeseredy, Marceline Naudi, María Lameiras Fernández, Marsha Scott and Liz Kelly (CEINAV PI 3). Carol Hagemann-White was in the round table on ethics and several presentations of CEINAV as well as of the Bystander Project were given by Maria José Magalhães, Carol Hagemann-White and Bianca Grafe. Thus the CEINAV project team was once again very visible and active during this huge conference.
