The parliamentary dialogue initiated on the basis of the accumulation of heavy acts of violence against women, which was invited by the second president of the National Council Doris Bures (SPO), entered the second round. It was held on Thursday without the presence of representatives of the ruling parties at the Epstein Palace in Vienna. Bourdes described the absence of Barbara Krain (ÖVP) and Stephanie Karlovitz (FPÖ) in the broadcast as "missed opportunity". ÖVP stayed last Wednesday for their club meeting.
"I am very sorry that members of the OSCE and the FPO did not participate in the Parliamentary Dialogue today despite the pledge," said the second president of the National Council. However, she was convinced that it would eventually be possible to find a majority in Parliament on the necessary measures to protect women from violence. It was her firm conviction that as a parliament you had to work together through all the party ranks.
The dialogue was launched by Bourges in order to create a platform for the exchange of information among field spokespersons in order to jointly define measures to protect women from domestic violence and to promote their implementation. Following the invitation, Claudia Hamon (Neos), Stephanie Cox (the "NOW" list), Gabriele Hanisch-Hosek (SPO), among the ten experts were the legal adviser Sonia Aziz, Martina Ludwig-Faymann, president of the Vienna Women's Women's Association and Udo Jazeenek , president of the White Ring Organization of Crime Victims. Joint considerations should be continued in small subgroups, according to the Bure office.
Conflict researcher: Mahothum also affects the Austrians
In advance, Birgit Haller spoke with criticism of patriarchal thinking to speak. Her research work at the Institute for Conflict Research (IKF) in Vienna has been dealing with these problems for decades. In 2011, her work "Murders in Relations: Condemning 2008-2010", 2013 is a study of sexual aggression among young men and 2018 for sexual offenses.
Where can I call if my husband is violent?
"The type of demonstrations of power and macho refers to the Austrians and foreigners," Haller said. Of course, there are differences in size, and especially younger Austrians are already different here, but young Afghans most often find patriarchy in its pure culture. The old-fashioned images of women are the basis on which violence flourishes well, and offenders legitimize their actions with these attitudes in court, as shown in the studies of Haller.
In the end, this problem can only be solved through education and – with non-Austrians – through integration. "I also know that this will take a lot of time, but in principle only through social participation they take their values," Haller said. About eight hours will not change that. Examples of refugees from states with patriarchal structures such as Afghanistan, who complete the education training in Austria and are integrated into Austrian families of higher education, on the other hand, have shown that this participation in the positive effects has caused.
Haller: "As if there was a woman less"
As for the actual murder offenses, only five crimes for violent violence against a woman in less than three weeks were committed in Lower Austria, also because the captain's point is patriarchal, "as if a woman is worth less." For Austrian men, this was no different: "In the murders I was investigating then, the most talked about the fact that men were jealous, often without a reason," said Haller examples from their 2011 study. So there were Cases in which the woman expressed the intention to separate ", and then the motive was really a stupid sentence" If I can not have it, there will be no other. ""
We also know that situations of violence are rising, for example, when there are biographical breaks, such as unemployment or retirement. This becomes even more pronounced when a woman succeeds, "then she starts playing again, but she also has a narcotic insult since our system is meant for working engagement – it's not worth nothing if you do not work." Again, there are men in whom the perceived unprivileged mixed with the ingredient of patriarchal thinking increases the propensity for violence.
