This talk will consider the multiple ways in which the phenomenon of sexual violence against men - and the realities experienced by the survivors produced by that violence – destabilise established understandings of how such violence works, who is victimized by it, and how and why it needs to be tackled. It then looks at how this destabilisation in turn challenges us to reconsider core assumptions about the relationship between data and intervention.


Professor Chris Dolan

Chris Dolan is a Professor in Global Sustainable Development at the University of Warwick. Prior to this, Chris' career was largely spent in Sub-Saharan Africa, primarily in South Africa, Mozambique, Democratic Republic of Congo and Uganda. From 2006-2022 Chris was Director of the Refugee Law Project in Uganda, a position in which he developed a range of work with refugee and IDP survivors of conflict-related sexual violence in the Great Lakes region. His research, training and advocacy on inclusive and non-binary understandings of and approaches to gender-based violence and victimisation has put him at the forefront of creating global awareness of conflict-related sexual violence against men and boys and its deep interconnections with such violence against women and girls. His current research focuses on the relationship between pathways to disclosure of sexual violence, the resultant (un)reliability of evidence, and the highly gendered political economy of sexual violence response and prevention.
