Investigating GBV Intersectional (Dis)Advantages and Legal Duties - A Scoping Study of UK Universities

  • Gangoli, Geetanjali (Principal Investigator)

Project Details


The proposed research addresses GW4 grand challenges ‘Health, demographic change, and wellbeing’ and ‘Social justice and inequality, local and global.’ It also falls within two ESRC strategic priorities: Innovation in health and social care; and Mental health. The Network has identified a clear research opportunity to construct an ecological, theoretical model of gender-based violence (GBV) relevant to UK universities. This opportunity emerged from the Co-PIs research (e.g. Fenton and Jones, 2017; Jones, 2017) on gender-based violence (GBV) within UK universities, men and masculinities, and intersectionality, and discussions with Co-Is working on the Justice Project (Fenton, Gangoli, Hester) that researches intersectionality, GBV, and victim/survivors’ experiences of support. Specifically, the Network will develop in the proposed research a theoretical model of sexual violence (SV) and domestic violence and abuse (DVA) amongst students and staff at universities, the associated mental health impacts and supports needed, and legal duties to prevent and respond, which falls within the ESRC open call ‘Large Research Grant.’
