Chemical Submission

Chemical submission, understood as committing crimes (generally sexual) while the victim is under the influence of psychoactive substances, is currently the subject of growing interest, in the scientific, professional and social fields.  

Similarly to other problems of our time, the solution appears to involve tackling it from a multidisciplinary point of view, while covering all the various aspects of this type of crime. 

The purpose of this conference is to shed light on some of these aspects, from toxicological, medical and forensic aspects to psychological and legal aspects. 

Organised with the Catalan Society for Forensic Medicine and Toxicology (Catalan Academy of Medical Science).
