Economic and Social Context of Domestic Violence

  • Since the outbreak of Covid-19 in the spring of 2020, media outlets around the world have reported increases in domestic violence. United Nations secretary-general António Guterres has even referred to it as a “shadow pandemic”. Besides news outlets, academic researchers have also taken an interest in the issue, which is crucial if we are to draw the right conclusions from the patterns we see in the statistics. More rigorous statistical analysis is needed for understanding not only of the scale of domestic violence during the pandemic, but also the broader socio-economic reasons which are behind this phenomenon in regular times, how it is perceived and what types of policies and regulations can be employed to limit it.
  • With this in mind the Baltic Journal of Economics, in cooperation with Stockholm Institute of Transition Economics and the FREE Network, is inviting contributions to a special issue entitled Economic and social context of domestic violence. Both applied and theoretical contributions are welcome. Given the scope of the journal we welcome in particular research focused on domestic violence in the region of Central and Eastern Europe, but papers based on data from other parts of the world will also be considered.
  • In parallel, a series of conferences on this topic will be organized as part of the Forum for Research on Gender Economics (FROGEE) supported by the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida). More information available here: https://freepolicybriefs.org/events/

Submission Instructions

  • All contributions will be subject to the standard editorial and reviewing process.
  • The planned date of publication of the Special Issue is December 2022.
