Interesting lessons continue to be drawn from the period of the COVID-19 pandemic and we begin with two research articles on this theme from the UK. Selma Taha and Liz Kelly (2024) look at how working from home during the pandemic shielded violence against women support works from racism, while Alex Walker and colleagues (2024) consider bystander experiences of domestic violence. In the next article Amparo de Píñar-Prats and María Nieves Pérez-Marfil (2024) in Spain conclude that specific support related to GBV is important to overcome the longer-term GBV impacts on women’s mental health. Mariana Magalhães and Marta E. Aparicio-García (2024) look at partner violence among opposite-sex and same-sex couples in Portugal, finding that sexism and mental health impacts are common factors. Two articles then consider abuse of women who use drugs or alcohol. Ediomo-Ubong Nelson and Lala Ireland (2024) explore the complex interplay of vulnerabilities to IPV and the survival needs of women who use drugs (WWUD) in Nigeria, while Sarah Fox and colleagues (2024) look at how abusive male partners in the UK use women’s substance use as justification to increase coercive control. Subrata Banarjee (2024) considers the law and legal processes regarding sexual violence in Bangladesh, finding considerable gaps compared to international instruments. In the further research article, Ruchi Saini and Anne Spear (2024) look at how teachers in Burkino Faso define and understand GBV differently to international organisations, creating difficulties in work to empower the teachers concerned.
