Femicide: a comparative approach from a Dutch, Italian and European point of view

Friday 24 May 2024
Turfmarkt 99

An international conference organized by Italian Studies at Leiden University and The Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

The meeting will be dedicated to addressing the issue of femicide in Europe, in particular the policies implemented by the Dutch and Italian governments. How is data collected in Europe? How do Dutch and Italian societies perceive the problem? Is media interest in the topic increasing? These and other urgent issues will be at the center of our event, where three experts will discuss these delicate issues, mediated and introduced by a journalist.
