    Since December 2022, the DAAD-funded lecture series "Gender and Crime" has been running as a cooperation project between the University of Konstanz and the Kyiv National Economic University. The series is an online seminar for Ukrainian law students with many exciting contributions from speakers from Ukraine, Germany, Hungary and Poland. Within the framework of the English-language online lectures, students are enabled to continue their studies and to deal with gender references in criminal law despite the war, closed universities and flight. The project was developed in cooperation with Prof. Dr. Kateryna Ilikchiieva (Kyiv National Economic University) and is coordinated at the University of Konstanz by Prof. Dr. Liane Wörner and Dr. Julia Geneuss.

    We will conclude the transnational project on 26.01.2023 with a public panel discussion, to which we cordially invite you. The event will take place as a hybrid event at the University of Konstanz (17:00, room R513) and via Zoom (access link below).
