Technology-Facilitated Abuse: Preliminary Findings of a Global Delphi Study | MAEVe
November 27 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pmFree
Technology-facilitated abuse (“tech abuse”) in the context of intimate partner violence (IPV) describes an incident or a pattern of incidents in which digital systems are used with the intention to monitor, control, coerce, threaten, degrade, and harm a victim/survivor. Tech abuse, therefore, intersects closely with other forms of IPV and family and domestic abuse, as well as stalking. However, tech abuse is not an “official” concept nor measurement category. To date, scholars have used different terminology to describe the perpetration of abuse and harassment via digital means. In this presentation, preliminary findings of an ongoing global Delphi study will be shared in which we examine the “boundary questions” that tech abuse creates and offers a framework to tackle the lack of agreed conceptualisation and terminological specificity.
