Factors Affecting Domestic Abuse
Academic Team: Anna Trendl
Using crime data provided by the West Midlands Police, COPR researcher Anna Trendl is investigating the factors affecting domestic abuse. Anna's previous projects have explored the temporal and geographical patterns of domestic abuse across the West Midlands and investigated the relationship between deprivation and the prevalence of domesstic abuse. More recently, her work has focused on how international football tournaments (such as the World Cup and European Championship) affect levels of domestic abuse, with a focus on alcohol related incidents. Anna is now also looking at how the media coverage of the me too movement affects the willingness of victims to report historic sexual abuse cases.
