Technology-enabled Domestic Abuse Study

From Kieron Turk and Alice Hutchings:

We are looking for experts on technology-enabled abuse, abuse support workers, law enforcement who have worked with abuse survivors, and industry professionals who are affected by the threats abusers pose to help us explore the key technological threats that abusers pose and ways to mitigate these issues through a Delphi study. 

The Delphi study involves multi-round surveys with feedback provided to participants after each round based on the combined group response, aiming towards a consensus among participants. This study consists of three parts: characterising tech-abusers and exploring the threats posed, ranking these threats to identify the key issues, and attempting to identify ways to mitigate the higher risk issues. There will be a series of four surveys which will each take up to an hour to complete. Participants will be sent a survey every three weeks, with two weeks to complete the survey and one week for processing. The first round of the survey is included in this invite, and the second round will be sent out on the 24th of January 2022.

If you would like to participate in this study, please fill out the consent form and the first round of the survey here:

If you have any questions about the study, please do not hesitate to contact us at kieron.turk@cl.cam.ac.uk or alice.hutchings@cl.cam.ac.uk
