Call for Papers: Conflicts, Disasters and Violence Against Women

Violence against women (VAW) is widely recognized as a pervasive, global problem that is associated with poor health and economic outcomes for women and their children. Women are often disproportionately exposed to physical, sexual, and psychological violence during violent conflicts, political upheavals, disasters, and forced displacement. Current events have brought VAW to the forefront, and a feminist economic understanding is needed more than ever. This special issue will focus on the economic drivers, mechanisms, and impacts of conflict and disasters on VAW, including both domestic violence and violence experienced outside of home, often in conflict and disaster zones. It will also explore interactions between all three to explicate the broader political economic implications of VAW.
