Ali Jafar has contacted me to ask me to share the details of his study (based at the University of Huddersfield) as far and wide as possible. He is looking for male victims of female interpersonal violence (over 18) and police officers who have reported to cases with male victims of female interpersonal violence who would be willing to be interviewed.
From his Information Sheet:
”You are being invited to take part in a study about men’s experiences of female offending behaviour and the criminal justice system following female perpetrated intimate partner violence. Before you decide to take part it is important that you understand why the research is being done and what it will involve. Please take time to read the following information carefully and discuss it me if you wish. Please do not hesitate to ask if there is anything that is not clear or if you would like more information.
“The purpose of this study is to see what experiences you had when you suffered intimate partner violence from your female partner. To explore your understanding of their offending behaviour, details of the actual offence, what experiences you had in being the victim, how you responded to the intimate partner violence and your role in the relationship. The study also explores your experiences of the criminal justice system when you reported being a victim of intimate partner violence and what support you had after.
”All information disclosed within the interview will be kept confidential, unless you indicate that you or anyone else is at risk of serious harm, in which case I would need to pass this information to the relevant agencies.
“All information collected from you during this research will be kept secure and any identifying material, such as names will be removed in order to ensure anonymity. It is anticipated that the research may, at some point, be published in a journal or report. However, should this happen, your anonymity will be ensured, although it may be necessary to use your words in the presentation of the findings and your permission for this is included in the consent form.”
