Learning how to end gender-based violence at universities
Sexual violence against and harassment of women students at universities is a major problem. A five-country EU study found that the majority of incidents go unreported due mainly to fear of not being believed. The EU-funded UniswithHeart project will investigate how social movements are tackling sexual violence at universities and empowering victims to speak up. Specifically, it will shed light on which social movement strategies and mechanisms are effective. It will also examine the role of public sociology in promoting European Student Networks of Support (SNS), which are influencing academic policies against sexual violence. The findings will shed light on how SNS can help to influence administrations and legislation in terms of promoting safety and supportive campus environments with the aim of ending gender-based violence.
