Abstract

This panel deals with gender aspects on violence in politics. It explores how and when gender is used as a motive for political attacks, different gendered forms of violence, as well as the gendered impacts and interpretations of political violence – on individual politicians as well as on communities and societies more broadly. We seek conceptual as well as empirical contributions, and we hope to explore violence situated differently on the continuum of violence, including, but not limited to, online violence, psychological forms of violence, sexual violence, physical violence as well as organized armed violence. We are particularly interested in papers that engage with intersectional and masculinity theory and with papers that investigate prevention and ways to address these endemic phenomena.
