The Reykjavík Dialogue is an international event that is held both virtually and in-person in Harpa Reykjavík, if conditions allow, to support activist leadership, with victim-survivors centre stage. It is hosted by the Icelandic government in co-operation with the City of Reykjavik.
The conference is organized in collaboration with RIKK – Institute for Gender, Equality and Difference at the University of Iceland on 16–17 August and will focus on survivor-centred justice by exploring how to advance traditional as well as non-traditional pathways to justice. As part of demands for state and perpetrator accountability, the goal is to investigate the different dynamics of deep-rooted issues of gender-based violence and sexual harassment.
The conference is followed by a dialogue on 17–18 August where activists, practitioners, and survivors from around the world will together set an agenda for work to end violence against women and girls for the following five years, 2021 – 2026. The event is open to registered guests and is free to attend. Guests can send in questions for the conference panels and the dialogue via the virtual conference platform.
