The Interpersonal Violence Conference at the University of Birmingham is on 2nd March 2018, hosted by the Centre for Crime Justice and Policing. This Conference will highlight the latest research, bringing together the field’s leading psychology, economic, public health, and domestic violence experts.
The Conference is free to attend and for practitioners and academics who are working to prevent IPV. Conference topics include sexual violence, domestic violence, intimate partner violence, and child sexual exploitation. Attendees will be given the opportunity to interact with specialists from a range of fields.
Jess Phillips, Birmingham Yardley’s MP, will deliver the Conference Keynote Address. Jess has committed her life to improving the lives of others, especially the most vulnerable, and spent five years working for Women’s Aid supporting and defending women. Since becoming an MP, Jess has continued her fight to support those who need it the most and she has been the Victims Champion at Birmingham City Council, lobbying police and criminal justice organisations on behalf of victims, and she also served on the West Midlands Police and Crime Panel. Jess has been appointed to the Women and Equalities Committee, the Backbench Business Committee and Chair of the Women’s PLP. She has earned a reputation for plain speaking since being elected, unfazed by threats and calling out sexist attitudes as she promotes women’s rights.
