Annual Conference 2024: 10 years of change - Exploring next frontiers of ending domestic violence

The conference will focus on how perpetrator work has changed since the network's founding and lay the groundwork for an even more impactful future.

We will also take a closer look at intimate partner violence in LGBTQ+ relationships and women’s use of force against their male partners. We will explore similarities and differences to male violence in heterosexual relationships and gain a greater sensitivity to the specific needs of female clients in heterosexual relationships and LGBTQ+ clients.

21-23 October

Anniversary celebration: 2024 is WWP EN’s 10th birthday!

To celebrate this special year, we will have a night of good food, dancing, and feminist comedy on 22 October at a beautiful location in central Berlin (see the venue: video 1, video 2, video 3).

We hope you decide to join us and look forward to dancing with you in Berlin.
