This interactive roundtable hosted by ARC Media (Anglia Research Centre in Media & Culture) addresses the growing social issue of image-based abuse in the digital era. There has been a dramatic rise in digitally based crimes – from 'revenge porn' to 'upskirting' and 'sextortion'. Bringing together a range of experts from the fields of law, criminology, film studies, and social media, we will discuss and debate how best to tackle this complex topic. Digital abuse is an issue that effects everyone: young people, parents, educators, and the broader community. During this open forum we will discuss key issues including the responsibility of social media platforms to deal with image-based abuse; ways to protect yourself in a 24/7 digital media environment and the relationship between online and offline forms of violence.

This event is part of Cambridge Festival of Ideas.
