On June 1st, the Centre for Gender Research and the PRIO Centre on Gender, Peace and Security hosted the launch of the EuroWARCHILD project. The launch brought together scholars and practitioners, as well as European war-children, to discuss what it means to be a child born of war.
A recent UN report published by the Secretary General in late January is one of the first to focus exclusively on women and girls who become pregnant as a result of sexual violence in conflict and on children born of war.
The ERC-funded EuroWARCHILD project has brought three new researchers to the Centre for Gender Research this semester: doctoral researchers Johanne Rokke Elvebakken and Lina Stotz, as well as Ingvill Constanze Mochmann, who will hold a part-time position as Professor II at STK.
The Centre for Gender Research (STK) is pleased to announce that the EuroWARCHILD project was kicked off on January 20 2022, when the project participants were finally able to meet in person in Oslo. The project is funded through a Consolidator Grant of the European Research Council (ERC) from 2021-2026.
