According to the INTERVICT Institute and Research and Documentation Center in the Netherlands, more than 200,000 individuals fall victim to domestic violence every year. This scenario is happening in a country that is described as the one who “cares the most about human rights” according to the 2019 Best Countries Ranking.
So, why is domestic violence still such a deep wound in our “civilized” societies?
Humanity of Things (HuOT) in partners with ARISE-NL community, are setting their aim in the empowering and support of domestic violence victims by providing them with the vital information, awareness and clear roadmap of the helping points in Netherlands, by using new technologies and digital platforms.
Victims need to have a knowledge survival tool kit available at any time in order to save lives, prevent victims from falling in the abuse cycle as well as protecting the children that become traumatized survivors of these relationships.
Through this event, we want to bring together multiple stakeholders to create a strong task force focused in the field solutions that can be a role model world wise and can help the non-Dutch victims in the Netherlands, to have a better support designed to their specific challenges.
Domestic violence affects us all as a society and we should respond as such, as together we are stronger.
We will be joined by speaker Marisa Monteiro Borsboom: with a legal background, as a lawyer, mediator, legal manager and lecturer, this was still not enough. Her true calling is to advocate for humanity in the digital revolution. So, with that in mind, she became the President of Humanity of Things – Human, Digital and Technological Literacy.
