This project aims to investigate prevalence, nature and effects of revenge pornography in Australia, New Zealand and the United Kingdom.
Revenge pornography is a serious criminal justice problem, but only one Australian jurisdiction has introduced legislation to address the issue. Applicable laws here and elsewhere are inconsistent and inadequate. Little is known about how widespread these behaviours are or how socially, economically and psychologically harmful they are. The project aims to generate knowledge, a theoretical framework and a much-needed evidence base to develop law reform and strategic interventions.
