This book presents a much-needed examination of gender-based violence within universities. The authors present an overview of existing research and practice around gender-based violence in higher education in the United Kingdom, and they also look closely at the ideologies, politics, and institutional structures that underpin the history of policy initiatives to support prevention education. Arguing that most current approaches have been ineffective, they look at alternative approaches, including some innovative approaches already in place at particular universities, focusing specifically on the question of how effective they are at getting students to engage with the issue.

"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
