Research review on sexual harassment in academia
The research review of sexual harassment shows that gender harassment is the most common form of exposure within academia, that sexual harassment occurs in all disciplines, that vulnerability is reported by all groups (students, doctoral students and employees), that sexual harassment has physical, mental and professional consequences and that a majority of those exposed do not report the events.
CEC's Marianne Hall was previously employed by the Swedish Research Council and participated in the production of this research review.
- The report was commissioned by the Research Council in the wake of the # MeToo and #Akademiupproret in the fall of 2017. The review shows that research largely focuses on individuals being exposed and that consequences are often disastrous for those individuals. A bit surprising was that there is virtually no research on the perpetrator and what, if anything, that characterizes perpetrators of sexual harassment, says Marianne Hall.
