In collabration with Perpetrator Studies Network

Research in this field of Perpetrators Studies is navigating between both the study of "perpetration", and the criticism of the very label of "perpetrator" as a limited and ambiguous category, heavily influenced by legal positivism as well as political or economic strategies. Caught between what might be considered as antagonistic expectations (i.e., the parallel exploitation and problematization of their object of study), researchers in the field of perpetrator studies face epistemological challenges that can be common or divergent across disciplines yet end up having consequences on the framing of the global social issues they tackle. The objective of the Conference is both to explore these challenges and to provide a broader reflection on the boundaries of perpetrator's studies in the light of their relationships with violence, politics and harm.
