« Gender Violence: A Social Problem in the 21st Century »


Málaga, 13-14 November 2023

The terms set out below seek to enable the submission of scientific and technical research papers for the International Congress 14TH CONGRESS FOR THE STUDY OF VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN, to serve as an outline so that there is consistency across the presented papers and to facilitate their assessment by the Congress Scientific Committee.

Subject matter: « Gender Violence: A Social Problem in the 21st Century ».

The presented research papers should focus on gender-based violence, as envisaged in Act 7/2018 of 30 July, which modifies Act 13/2007 of 26 November, on prevention and comprehensive protection measures against gender-based violence. All the papers submitted will be assessed by the Congress Scientific Committee who will apply the following criteria to select the studies, awarding a maximum of three points per criterion:

  • Consistency and relevance of the work to the subject matter of the Congress
  • Originality of the subject matter and/or creative approach
  • Conceptual rigour and methodological precision
  • Clarity of the arguments
  • Scientific and technical interest
  • Quality of the sources and documentary resources used
  • Applicability of the subject matter to professional performance
  • Relevance of the conclusions

An award will be presented to the scientific and technical research paper of greatest interest and therefore that has the highest score based on the aforementioned criteria. In the case of a tie, the Scientific Committee will make the final decision, taking into account, if necessary, the casting vote of the Chair of the Committee.
