Activity: Academic Talks or PresentationsOral presentationResearch

Description

Sexual violence and harassment on university campuses are not a new concern, but a widespread issue. Universities are significant sites for action for tackling sexual violence, not only because they have a duty to provide safe and positive university experiences during this time, but also because of the paucity of research focusing on campuses within the United Kingdom. Much of the existing research in this area focuses on US colleges, where on-campus sexual violence, harassment and assault are major concerns. The prevalence of on-campus sexual violence and assaults within UK Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) is only just becoming apparent in the last decade or so. This paper uses a Critical Race Theory lens with which to consider the approach taken by university management in a case study institution to the problem of sexual violence.
