Priya Devendran will speak on 'An investigation into the relationship between employment status & the severity of intimate partner violence'

An investigation into whether the relationship between employment status and the severity of intimate partner violence can be advanced through an intersectional lens.

It is well established that race and gender are associated with intimate partner violence (IPV) perpetration, and a myriad of factors make both these social categories two of the strongest correlates for IPV perpetration. Although informative, extant research has not yet demonstrated empirically how unemployment can help us to understand intersectional differences in the severity of IPV perpetration.

This seminar will outline findings from an investigation. Accordingly, this study examines whether certain groups characterised by the intersection of race and gender are more likely to engage in severe IPV and, if so, the extent to which unemployment explains (ie – mediates) why certain demographic groups are more likely to do so.
