The Chair contributes to Belgian efforts on the subject of sexual violence at all stages of life. (January, 2018)
A Belgian mission financed by the project took place in December, 2017, and brought together all the contributors involved in the project to begin the work. This first international meeting validated the issue, the state of knowledge and the methodological perspectives. During this work assignment, Marie Beaulieu also had the opportunity to meet legislators from the Walloon Government who are initiating a process to enact legislation on the mistreatment of older adults. It was therefore an opportunity for Professor Beaulieu to promote the Government Action Plan to Counter Mistreatment of Older Adults (PAM) as well as the Act to combat maltreatment of seniors and other persons of full age in vulnerable situations.
