Conference Gender & Crime

Invitation and programme

Call for Papers

This year, the third edition of the Gender & Crime conference will take place under the guiding theme “Structures, causes and conditions of gender-specific violence” – in 2024 for the first time in presence!

Due to financial funding, it is possible for us not to charge a conference fee. However, a small catering fee of 20 euro will be charged for the provision of drinks and small snacks. There is a reduced fee of 15 euro for students and legal trainees.

If this fee is a significant challenge for you and you cannot afford it for financial reasons, please contact us. We will try to find individual solutions.

To be able to cover our catering costs for the two days, we kindly ask you to transfer the catering fee directly after registration to the following account:
