The SVRI Forum 2013 aims to promote promising practices for preventing and responding to sexual and intimate partner violence.

Five sub-themes will drive Forum 2013 and are as follows:

  • Addressing sexual and intimate partner violence in low- and middle-income countries
  • Child abuse and neglect
  • HIV and sexual violence
  • Trafficking for sexual exploitation
  • Sexual and other forms of gender-based violence in conflict and crisis

Within these themes, abstracts which include a life-course perspective; address under-researched areas such as disability and sexual abuse; as well as abstracts which address men and masculinities; and gender and prevention of sexual violence and IPV are particularly encouraged.

Priority will also be given to abstracts that detail responses and prevention programmes that incorporate multi-sectoral and cross sectoral strategies or have findings of interventions and longitudinal studies.

We encourage participants to use the SVRI Sexual Violence Research Agenda as guide in developing abstracts.

In the coming weeks we will give more details about the venue, call for abstracts, pre-conference workshops, prize-giving and more. If you have any queries, please contact us at
