The Sexual Violence Research and Prevention Unit (SVRPU), The University of the Sunshine Coast, hosted a one-day symposium on September 8th, the first of its kind, bringing together national and international experts to discuss the importance of context for preventing sexual violence and abuse and improving community safety. 

There is growing recognition, and a developing evidence base, supporting the contextual dynamics of sexual violence and abuse. Lessons learned from Australia’s Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse, for example, drew attention to contextual factors (organisational leadership, policies and practice) that create conditions that might either increase risk, or protect against, sexual abuse. Multidisciplinary research evidence also shows how family, peer, school and neighbourhood settings may also contribute to abusive behaviour. Collectively, this highlights the need to ensure prevention strategies, as well as responses to sexual abuse, are contextualised.‘ 

Caricatures of the presenters, including a rough diagram summary of their presentation, were prepared earlier:

So we’re taking a break for a few days to recharge.’
