International research collaboration on legal response to image-based sexual abuse

Birmingham Law School Professor, Erika Rackley, will be joining colleagues from Australia, New Zealand and the UK to examine the prevalence, nature and effects of image-based sexual abuse and the implications for law reform.

The Project, funded by the Australian Research Council, will run for three years from 2017. Professor Rackley's research is the subject of one of our Research Spotlights, and her work with Professor Clare McGlynn developed the concept and scope of image-based sexual abuse on the Everyday Victim Blaming blog.
