Khatidja Chantler, Ph.D., Professor of Gender, Equalities & Communities at Manchester Metropolitan University and Co-Investigator on iMPACTS, was interviewed by the BBC about coercive domestic abuse. Specifically, Prof Chantler's study found that, in cases where victims had been killed by their current or ex-partner, more than half had experienced coercive and controlling behaviour in the relationship.
The findings presented in the BBC interview come from Prof Chantler's study, which addresses important gaps in existing knowledge of domestic homicide and aims to learn from the experiences of families who have lost a relative to domestic homicide, victims/survivors of domestic abuse.
