Short Courses on Violence Against Women and Researching Violence this Autumn

August 3, 2021

We are offering the following two short courses this Autumn.

Violence Against Women: Issues, Research and Policy

This course will introduce you to research on multiple forms of violence. It will cover different types of violence against women, as well as its prevalence and consequences. This will include research on intimate partner violence, rape and sexual assault, sexual harassment, sexual exploitation, female genital mutilation (FGM) and crimes in the name of honour. The course will address explanatory frameworks and perspectives (including human rights) and critically assess current policy approaches.

Researching Violence and Evaluating Interventions 

This short course will focus on methodological approaches to researching forms of violence which are primarily targeted against women and children (e.g. domestic violence, rape, sexual assault and childhood sexual abuse, sexual exploitation and trafficking, crimes in the name of honour, female genital mutilation, stalking and harassment) and evaluating support and prevention initiatives/interventions. Content will cover: feminist epistemologies and power in the research process; formulating research questions; ethical dilemmas and practices; survey methods, including prevalence data; qualitative research exploring women and children’s perspectives as well as those of perpetrators; creative and arts-based methods; policy-oriented research. In the second half of the course, we introduce approaches to evaluation and the specific issues, challenges and opportunities when creating knowledge through evaluating interventions with victim-survivors and perpetrators of violence.
