Abstract

This panel explores gender-based violence and violence against women in politics and political institutions. It includes its forms and expressions, its magnitude and consequences. This form of violence is understood both as a threat to the rights and freedom of the targeted politicians, and as an obstacle to democratic participation. The panel includes papers from different national contexts and different theoretical approaches to enable a discussion on the multiple forms and consequences of violence against women in politics.
