Report - 'Connecting the dots: Understanding sexual assault in university communities'
In January 2017, End Rape on Campus Australia produced a submission to the Australian Human Rights Commission’s ‘University Sexual Assault and Harassment’ project. The report, titled “Connecting the dots: understanding sexual assault in university communities”, is the product of our extensive advocacy work with survivors and their supporters. The submission provides detailed analysis of the problem of sexual violence in Australian educational communities, and includes a comprehensive suite of recommendations for change at the level of individual universities, as well as at state and federal government levels.
