Research Case Study 6: Sextortion – an unaddressed form of corruption and sexual abuse
Research findings from Malawi, Tanzania, Uganda and Rwanda raise concerns about the extent and impact of sextortion, sometimes called sexual corruption. Efforts to understand its impact and underlying causes will help us to address this widespread yet widely ignored problem.
Sextortion causes severe psychological harm and impacts victims’ health and well-being yet receives insufficient attention in both research and policy-making.
Our research aims to turn attention towards this crucial issue, to unveil and address sextortion and the social norms that enable and perpetuate it.
