The seminar opens the cycle of quarterly debates: Women and gender in the contemporary world. These events with the participation of speakers representing various academic disciplines and a wide range of social and cultural fields are to share knowledge, experiences and research results within a wide group of people interested in women’s and gender issues.
The first seminar will address the topic of gender-based violence in Italy and Poland, particularly in the context of the Istanbul Convention. Gender-based violence is one of the most notable human rights violations within all societies.

During the seminar we will discuss the situation of women in Poland and Italy and the consequences related to the Istanbul Convention termination.
