Violent crime. Up for women, down for men

Bookings are now open for this year's Eve Saville memorial lecture, to be delivered by Professor Sylvia Walby, Distinguished Professor of Sociology and UNESCO Chair in Gender Research at Lancaster University.

At the lecture, in London on 12 April, Professor Walby will present ground-breaking new research showing that women have born the brunt of rises in violence victimisation since the start of the financial crisis in 2008/09. Men, by contrast, have experienced falling rates of violence victimisation.

On publicity

Julian Hargreaves, Research Associate at the Centre for Islamic Studies at the University of Cambridge, reflects on the media coverage of his recent article on research into Muslim victimisation.
