Exploring Issues of Confinement and Violence in Urban Poor Communities and Jail Settings.
As part of our continued effort to deepen our knowledge and understanding about the field of violence, suffering and human rights, Balay, together with the Danish Institute against Torture (DIGNITY) and the College of Social Work and Community Development, University of the Philippines, Diliman (UP-CSWCD), will be holding a seminar entitled: Exploring Issues of Confinement and Violence in Urban Poor Communities and Jail Settings.
The seminar shall explore the themes of buryong and sacrificial violence drawn from ethnographic research among members of fraternities in Bagong Silang, Caloocan City. Using these themes, the seminar shall also attempt to explore the connection between prisons and urban poor communities to deepen our understanding about notions of confinement.
The seminar will be given by Dr. Steffen Jensen, Senior Researcher from the Danish Institute against Torture (DIGNITY). Reactors from the UP-CSWCD faculty and representatives of non-governmental organizations (NGOs) are likewise present to provide their insights drawn from the seminar.
