Plenary Speaker - Friday, September 28

Dr Holly Johnson

 

Presentation title: Sexual Assault and the criminal (In)Justice System.

 

Dr. Holly Johnson, PhD

Associate Professor, Department of Criminology, University of Ottawa, Ottawa, Canada

For more than three decades, Dr. Johnson has studied the effectiveness of societal and criminal justice responses to crimes of violence against women. A major preoccupation of her work has been on exposing and challenging the failures of the justice system in order to hold men accountable for sexual violence against women. Dr Johnson’s research combines large-scale surveys with in-depth interviews with survivors of sexual violence to study women’s reluctance to report these crimes and decisions by police to dismiss large proportions of sexual assaults. As the principal investigator of Statistics Canada's first national survey on violence against women and a coordinator of the International Violence Against Women Survey, she has been influential in shaping both how violence against women is both understood and measured. Dr Johnson is involved in national and international networks working to refine research tools, prevent violence against women, and improve interventions and responses to these crimes. For example, she has served as expert advisor to the Secretary-General's report on violence against women, and was a member of the UN Expert Group on Indicators on Violence Against Women, the World Health Organization expert panel on primary prevention of sexual violence and intimate partner violence.
