A Multi-Disciplinary Perspective

What role does physical and virtual space play in gender-based violence (GBV)? Experts from the Global North and South use wide-ranging case studies – from public harassment in India and Kenya to the role of Twitter users in women’s harassment – to examine how spaces can facilitate or prevent GBV and showcase strategies for prevention and intervention from women and LGBTQ+ people.

Students and academics from a range of disciplines will discover how existing research connects with practice and policy developments, the current gaps in research and a future agenda for GBV studies.

Policy, Prevention and Educational Initiatives
Editors: Sundari Anitha and Ruth Lewis

Until recently, higher education in the UK has largely failed to recognise gender-based violence (GBV) on campus, but following the UK government task force set up in 2015, universities are becoming more aware of the issue. And recent cases in the media about the sexualised abuse of power in institutions such as universities, Parliament and Hollywood highlight the prevalence and damaging impact of GBV.

In this book, academics and practitioners provide the first in-depth overview of research and practice in GBV in universities. They set out the international context of ideologies, politics and institutional structures that underlie responses to GBV in elsewhere in Europe, in the US, and in Australia, and consider the implications of implementing related policy and practice.

Presenting examples of innovative British approaches to engagement with the issue, the book also considers UK, EU and UN legislation to give an international perspective, making it of direct use to discussions of ‘what works’ in preventing GBV.

do not question from a gender perspective the division of productive and reproductive labour ( Macchi, 2006 ). In the light of all these factors the urban environment appears to be another element underpinning gender-based violence ( Belingardi et al, 2019 ). Fortunately, cities are not homogenous; they are constructed through the different practices and uses of those who live within, reshaping the city according to their desires, and reinventing the city through everyday practices in creative and expressive ways ( Kern, 2020 ). So, the city can also be a space

distancing, hand washing, sanitisation and self-quarantine which had already been endorsed as key steps in reducing the spread of the pandemic ( Ahimbisibwe, 2020 ). Pandemics, especially those in which quarantines, lockdowns and curfews are mandated, are usually associated with an increase in gender-based violence (GBV) ( Fraser, 2020 ; John et al, 2020 ). The victims and survivors of GBV are at a greater risk of experiencing GBV during circumstances of restricted social interactions ( Speed et al, 2020 ). In terms of gender, females have a higher risk of experiencing

( Hutton, 2006 ). On the other, the NTE can be understood as a site of risk-management and associated with the policing and control of women’s bodies ( Buckley and Fawcett, 2002 ; Tan, 2014 ). Crucially, the particular, (hetero)sexualized patterns of engagement that are encouraged and even expected in mainstream nightlife venues may serve to normalize interactions that sit on a continuum of gender-based violence (GBV) for women ( Kavanaugh, 2013 ). It is important to consider the ways in which the various pleasures and dangers of the NTE are experienced and negotiated
