Current Issue: Volume 19, Number 2 (2021) Technology-facilitated Gender-based Violence


This special issue of the Canadian Journal of Law and Technology focuses on the growing problem of technology-facilitated gender-based violence (TFGBV): an expansive, dynamic, and rapidly evolving phenomenon that Jane Bailey and Carissima Mathen have defined as “a spectrum of behaviours carried out at least in some part through digital communications technologies, including actions that cause physical or psychological harm.” The collection of articles in this issue offers multi-disciplinary insights on TFGBV by bringing together the work of emerging scholars in information and media studies, communications, and law. This approach reflects our firm belief that in order to be meaningful and effective, legal and policy decisions must be grounded in knowledge that centres the lived experiences of members of marginalized communities, including those documented in social science evidence.
