Oxford Understanding Relationships, Sex, Power, Abuse and Consent Experiences (OUR SPACE)


Despite the occurrence and significant negative impact of sexual violence within higher education institutions (HEIs) in the UK, there has been little investigation into the prevalence and characteristics of such incidents -- this is a notable oversight, considering that such information is necessary to inform sexual violence prevention initiatives and programs. In order to address this, a group featuring PISC postdoctoral fellow Michelle Degli Esposti, PhD, and External Advisory Board member David Humphreys, PhD, worked with Universities UK and the University of Oxford to develop the Oxford Understanding Relationships, Sex, Power, Abuse and Consent Experiences (OUR SPACE) survey. OUR SPACE will be administered to all students over the age of 18 at Oxford, with the results analyzed in future studies.
