Reykjavík Peace Days: The War at Home

In this podcast we discuss gender-based violence, its root causes and consequences. Who are the perpetrators and how can we create an open dialogue with them? Do we find peace in Icelandic homes?

This episode was produced in collaboration with UN Women in Iceland.

The podcast is in Icelandic and it is a part of the Reykjavík Peace Days 2020 podcast series produced in collaboration with the Ministry for Foreign Affairs, UN Women in Iceland, UNICEF in Iceland and the UN association in Iceland. The discussion takes place in the week of October 12 to October 16 and the goal is to attempt to define the terms gender-based and domestic violence, discuss the state of play locally, explore ways of improvement on a domestic and international level and discuss how Iceland can take the lead in fighting human rights abuses on the international arena.
