Research Overview

My research concerns the changing attitudes of male offenders towards violence against women. A pilot project has indicated that there may be an increased acceptance, even valorisation, of violence against women, evidenced in the narrative accounts of male offenders. Further to the analysis of narrative accounts of both offenders and prison staff, a review of the policy and practice regarding the treatment in prison (including segregation policy) of those who have committed crimes of violence against women is being conducted.
