In this book, academics and practitioners provide the first in-depth overview of research and practice in GBV in universities. They set out the international context of ideologies, politics and institutional structures that underlie responses to GBV in elsewhere in Europe, in the US, and in Australia, and consider the implications of implementing related policy and practice.

Presenting examples of innovative British approaches to engagement with the issue, the book also considers UK, EU and UN legislation to give an international perspective, making it of direct use to discussions of `what works' in preventing GBV.

"This book certainly fills a gap, is very topical and brings together thinking and practice in an under researched yet increasingly debated area." Jane Ellis, Anglia Ruskin University
