Online- Vortrag „The Criminalization of Sexual Harassment“

Posted by on Okt 19, 2021 in

Eine theoretische Betrachtung von dem Zusammenhang von Kriminalisierung und sexualisierter Gewalt

Veranstaltungssprache: Englisch

Dr. Linnea Wegerstad addresses a theoretical approach to the criminalisation in relation to sexual harassment using Sweden as an example. The topic is spurred by two separate yet interrelated phenomena, the first being the #metoo movement and its raised awareness of the widespread problem of sexual harassment while questioning criminal law as a proper response to the issue. The second being the growing concern amongst international researchers and Swedish activists that the feminist struggle against sexual violence is turning towards punitive measures. The lecture seizes to spark a critical conversation with criminal law and policy.
