Coercive and controlling behaviour is a form of Violence Against Women and Girls and an offence under s76 of the Serious Crime Act 2015.
However, the reality is this behaviour often goes unrecognised for what it is. Through raising awareness and understanding we can more confidently expose certain controlling behaviours as abusive. This symposium aims to change conversations around coercive control and domestic abuse, and in doing so contribute to keeping women and children safe.
Reasons to attend this event:
This is the first time LSBU has organised an event to mark 16 days of activism against Gender-Based Violence. This international campaign runs from November 25, the International Day Against Violence Against Women, and December 10, International Human Rights Day.
This event is brought to you jointly by the Crime and Justice Research Group, School of Law and Social Sciences and the School of Health and Social Care at LSBU.
