How to recognize, fight and prevent domestic abuse?
Triene Mie Lecompte, Anne Groenen, Olivier Slosse & Annabelle van Nieuwenhuyse
One of the most harmful outcomes of the pandemic worldwide has been the sharp increase in domestic violence. In this conversation, we ask Triene-Mie Le Copmpte and Anne Groenen, two professionals in the field, from their own perspective to shed light on the realities of domestic violence as portrayed in Markus Ohrn’s piece.
We will also invite Olivier Slosse, the chief of police of the Brussels-North police zone and who played an important role in the creation of the Care Centre after Sexual Violence, to reflect on what the City of Brussels has done so far to combat the problem, and what challenges and opportunities still lie ahead. All this will be moderated by Annabelle van Nieuwenhuyse.
• Triene-Mie Le Compte, expert by experience, and Anne Groenen, scientist and mediator, stand up for the protection of women's and children's rights. They do this specifically around partner violence, informing, sensitising and motivating to break the cycle of violence. On International Women's Day, they published their book Als liefde overleven wordt – de vele gezichten van partnergeweld (When Love Becomes Survival – the many faces of partner violence).
