The Europe Institute for Gender Equality suggests that gender based violence 'constitutes a breach of the fundamental right to life, liberty, security, dignity, equality between women and men, non-discrimination and physical and mental integrity.' It tries to categorise acts of violence as domestic, harassment, rape, customary traditional practises in some cultures trafficking, forced prostitution, violations of human rights, forced pregnancy, forced sterilisation, forced abortion and more.

The 'MSc in Sex, Gender, Violence at University of Aberdeen provides you with a contemporary critical approach to this subject. The programme offers you an inter-disciplinary range of courses as it analyses contemporary forms of violence, especially as they are related to sex and gender. MSc Sex, Gender, Violence is taught by The Centre for Gender Studies, a leading institute with considerable expertise in this subject.

The Centre for Gender Studies offers taught postgraduate programmes and research degrees. As a research Centre, we are committed to fostering and developing inter-disciplinary scholarship which is relevant to the needs of 21st century societies. The re-launch of the Centre in September 2010 coincides with the launch of the Graduate School's Research Project Awards Scheme which offers a number of bursaries for postgraduate study. The Centre for Gender Studies was successful in securing one of these funding packages - 'Inter-Disciplinary Approaches to Violence'.
