Audio Documentary

In 2023, a research team at the Centre for Human Rights and Legal Pluralism produced a French-language audio documentary as part of their broader inquiry into the legal and quasi-legal dimensions of sexual violence on higher education campuses. This audio documentary, titled "Décrypter la violence sexuelle sur les campus du Québec", explores the problem of sexual violence in the sphere of higher education in Quebec as well as the government's legislative response.

The research team thanks two expert guests who participated in the documentary's creation: Manon Bergeron, Professor in the Department of Sexology at UQAM and holder of the Research Chair in Gender and Sexual Violence in Higher Education, and Samy-Jane Tremblay, President of the Quebec Student Union.

The following is a guide to the one-hour audio documentary, for listeners who may wish to navigate to a particular subject:
