Abstract

Gender-based violence, including sexual harassment, is an issue faced by students and staff at all levels and in all disciplines in higher education and research institutions. It has detrimental consequences for individuals, but incidents are still often treated as taboo by higher education institutions and research organisations. Instituting effective prevention and intervention measures, which put the victim's interests at the centre may be seen as challenging in light of potential conflicting interests inside higher education institutions. Research shows that women who report incidents of violence for themselves are penalised e.g. socially and career-wise (Hart 2019). On a more general level, institutional responses to different forms of violence, including the normalisation of violence in academia received little attention, both as a research topic and in policy making, despite the role it plays in producing and reproducing gender-based violence. We propose a panel on gender-based violence in higher education and research institutions with a focus on learning from conceptual, theoretical and empirical work conducted in different contexts. We propose an open panel and welcome abstract submissions on various forms of gender-based violence in higher education and research institutions, including physical violence, psychological violence, economic or financial violence, sexual violence and harassment, and online forms of violence.
