Debunking a Danish value narrative – a strategy to prevent sexual violence?

The past decades Denmark has continued to have national prevalence studies that shows sexual violence to be both a significant and a gendered problem. Yet, this has until recently not taken much space as a gender equality issue neither in politics nor in public discussions. Based on her PhD research among young people in Denmark anthropologist Katrine Bindesbøl Holm Johansen presents in her key note findings on the values, perceptions and norms conducive for sexual violence and mechanisms enabling sexual violence among young people and address what this may implicate for policy and practice in terms of prevention of sexual violence.
