Re-Imagining Sexual Harassment: Perspectives from the Nordic Region

New book with contribution from Lea Skewes

Book cover

The #MeToo movement sparked many debates and increased the demand for more problematised perspectives on the issue of sexual harassment.

This book opens up new understandings of sexual harassment by bringing researchers, writers and policy makers in the Nordic region into dialogue within an ambitious volume. It asks what role juridical frameworks can and should play in prevention and raises questions about how the image of Nordic states – as gender equal, colour-blind and with strong welfare – affects the work against sexual harassment in the region.

Re-imagining definitions of justice, violence, exploitation and work, this book offers knowledge of immediate importance for everyone working to prevent sexual harassment, through research, policy making or in everyday practice.
