Roundtable on Gender-Based Violence in South Africa (hybrid)

We are pleased to invite you to a Roundtable on gender-based violence in South Africa at the University of the Witwatersrand on September 14, 2022.

The event will be hosted by the University of the Witwatersrand which is celebrating 100 years of ground-breaking research that have changed Africa for the better. This event contributes to the celebrations by perpetuating academic excellence on such an important topic as gender-based violence.

This Roundtable aims at discussing the recent trend in gender-based violence in South Africa from the perspective of a wide spectrum of key actors. These discussions will highlight past experiences, existing challenges, and research avenues to make progress on our collective understanding of gender-based violence.


Participation in the Roundtable is free, and the lunch will be covered for all the participants. The number of participants at the venue is limited to 40 on-site and online attendance is possible. For logistical reasons, registration to the event is compulsory.

We invite you to register before September 6 at midnight (23:59 UTC/GMT +2) here:



This Roundtable is supported by the research project PHC Protea “Domestic violence in South Africa: A social and economic issue” jointly funded by the French Ministry for Europe and Foreign Affairs and the South African National Research Foundation.
