  • 1 Step Forward, 3 Steps Back? Addressing Gender-Based Violence in 2021

    INTENDED AUDIENCE: Open to all.

    Violence against women and girls continues to be a devastating experience for individuals, families, and communities in peace, conflict, and crisis areas. 1 in 3 females experience sexual violence from partners, non-partners, or both according to the UN. Females face potential violence in their homes, workplaces, schools, and communities; as well as online. The current pandemic has exacerbated risk factors for violence against women and girls, such as poverty and unemployment. Hard won rights, laws and policies to protect women and girls are being challenged, and in some cases revoked.

    Join our friends at Coady International Institute on November 25 to hear from speakers from different countries on their work addressing gender-based violence. 2021 marks the 30th anniversary of the Global 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence, and November 25 is the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women and Girls.

  • Next Wales/Nova Scotia Event

    INTENDED AUDIENCE: Anyone interested in housing issues.

    The next Transatlantic conversation will be held on October 28 at 3pm in Wales, 11am in Nova Scotia, staying under the community umbrella, but this time focusing on the subject of housing.

    We all need somewhere to sleep, don’t we? Everyone should have a roof over their head, shouldn’t they? You should be able to live in your ‘home’ community if you wanted to, shouldn’t you?

    Housing is a complex, emotive subject that not only intersects with our hopes and dreams, but also raises awareness and concern around its intersection with power and equity as the world becomes ever more unequal. Wales and Nova Scotia’s experiences mirror each other but are also different with challenges unique to their particular situation.

    Join us for another conversation across the ocean to share what’s the same, what’s different and how we can help each other. For more information contact Ray MacNeil at CLARI.

About the CLARI Space

Our home base is at our partner institution, Saint Mary’s University in Halifax. The CLARI space consists of administrative offices as well as a facilitation facility that we believe is one of the best in Atlantic Canada.

CLARI research partnerships from across our network use this space, when needed, to facilitate their community research. CLARI staff use it for Collaboratives and other networking events.
