The Nordic and Baltic regions are two of the most digitalised regions in the world. In recent years, the countries have been quick to respond to online gender-based violence.
However, hate and violence are always finding new outlets, with society's response one step behind.
So, what are the blind spots in the prevention of technology-facilitated gender-based violence from the perspective of researchers, civil society, and those most affected?
Meet the Nordic-Baltic experts:
Anette Trettebergstuen, The Minister of Culture and Equality in Norway will give an opening speech.
