We hereby cordially invite you to the second Gender & Crime conference. The considerable response at the first event showed us how great the interest is for gender aspects in criminal law, criminology, victimology and correctional science and how diverse these topics are. A particular focus of the inaugural conference – both in the presentations and in the discussions – were the topics of sexual self-determination and gender-based violence, with catcalling and femicide being among the central issues. The interdisciplinary approach to these phenomena has made it clear to us how important a continuous exchange of information on current research and the resulting findings is. On account of this, we want to specifically address topics that deal with sexual autonomy as well as gender-based, anti-feminist violence this year. We would therefore particularly welcome abstracts concerning violence in interpersonal relationships, (image-based) sexualized violence, hate crime against women and members of the LGBTQIA+ community, femicide, catcalling, anti-feminist ideologies, for instance amongst incels or in right-wing extremism, but also on topics related to sexual self-determination and gender-based violence. Through this focus we wish to establish a guiding theme for this year’s convention, but at the same time other contributions which deal with the connection between gender and crime are also welcome. As we wish to include more international perspectives this year, we welcome abstracts written in English.
