International perspectives on combating cyberviolence: understanding impact, providing effective responses



The growing role of digital technology in ethnographic work exposes us to new risks and raises
unprecedented methodological and ethical challenges. We need to collectively rethink our
survey methods in the light of our digital exposure, acquire the tools to analyse and objectify
cyberviolence and learn how to protect ourselves against it. To this end, we want to reect both
on the use of social networks as part of the ethnographic survey and the eects of media
coverage at the feedback stage. This workshop will bring together young researchers, activists
involved in the ght against cyberviolence and legal specialists. Initially, the aim will be to gain
a better understanding of how online threats are articulated in terms of gender and codes of
expression specic to the cultural spaces under study. We will then seek to understand the
eects of censorship on researchers as a function of their social position and the spaces in
which they circulate and express themselves. The aim will be to overcome the lack of consideration
to which the gender of research is usually subject by enabling both men and women,
cisgender or not, to develop a reexivity that can lead to methodological advances useful to all.
Whatever the researcher’s position, xenophobic and gender-based violence has a political and
epistemological charge that needs to be made explicit, while taking intersectionality into account.
This epistemological concern may prove particularly fruitful when studying phenomena of
political extremism, where it is both the individuals and their ideas that are targeted.
The morning sessions will be devoted to accounts of the cyberviolence suered and the
responses envisaged individually by the participants. How does political dissent relate to
xenophobic and gender violence? How can these experiences be used as food for thought,
making it possible to clarify dierences of opinion and points of view, in order to anticipate
the damaging/risky eects of the feedback?
The third session will involve specialists in digital law, who will examine the role and
eectiveness of the law in combating gender-based cyberviolence at European and
international levels. The characteristics and potential of new legislative measures will be
The last session will look at the legal and educational solutions envisaged by scholars and
women’s associations. Our guest will present the digital surveys produced and their political
role as whistle-blowers.
Our ambition is to lay the foundations for a broader reection on the growing role of social
networks in the transfer and valuation of research, on the proper uses of digital technology in
professional interactions, and on their role in the development of critical awareness, in order
to contribute to the development of digital citizenship among young researchers in relation
to the various virtual communities in which they operate.
