Spain Education Abroad Program
Comparative Perspectives on Gender-Based Violence in Spain
Consider the complicated nature and dynamics of human trafficking, intimate partner violence, sexual assault, and stalking in the U.S. and Spain on this summer, faculty-led program: Comparative Perspectives on Gender-Based Violence in Barcelona, Spain. Together we will examine the scope of gender-based violence, different forms of gender-based violence, and national trends and practices. We will work to understand the roles of governments, non-governmental organizations, and individual actors in addressing the problem of gender-based violence.
While abroad, students will attend lectures with experts on gender-based violence and victim services; take a guided tour of Barcelona’s Raval neighborhood and speak with legal and social service practitioners serving sex workers; visit the Commission for Domestic and Gender-based Violence, and take a tour of Catalonia’s Parliament and meet with Catalonian legislators. Students will also enjoy a Catalan cooking class, take in a Flamenco show, experience a guided tour of La Sagrada Familia, and visit several historical and cultural landmarks such as the Gothic Quarter and the Magic Fountain during this two-week program in Spain.
The course is open to all UNO/UNL undergraduate students as well as Criminology and Criminal Justice graduate students and is worth 3 credit hours.
The course will begin meeting on campus during the last two weeks of May 2020. The 10-day immersion trip will run from June 2 to June 13, 2020.
