Feminist research on gender, violence and abuse has been an area of academic study since the late 1970s, and has increased exponentially over this time on a global scale. Although situated in a predominantly qualitative tradition, research in the field has developed to include quantitative and mixed methodologies. This book offers a compendium of research methods on gender and violence, from the traditional to the innovative, and showcases best practice in feminist research and international case studies. Researching Gender, Violence and Abuse covers:

  • The origins of feminist research,
  • Ethical considerations relating to research on gender, violence and abuse,
  • Working in partnership with organisations such as the police or the voluntary sector,
  • A comprehensive range of research methods including interviews and focus groups, surveys, arts-based research and ethnography,
  • The challenges and opportunities of working with existing data,
  • The influence of activism on research and the translation of research into policy and practice.

This book is perfect reading for students taking courses on violence against women, domestic violence, gender and crime, as well as advanced students embarking on new research.
