Seminar details


  • Gender Equality and Policing: exploring the importance of addressing gender inequality as a means of addressing Violence and Intimidation Against Women and Girls
  • Followed by allocated time for discussion and Q&A.


In this talk, Miles will explain how his personal and professional experiences have led him to seeking to address gender inequality. He will talk about his collaborative work with the United Nations HeforShe movement, and how this was used as a vehicle to engage male police officers on the issue. He will share examples of some of the work that Police forces across the UK are now doing to address gender inequality and how this overlaps with their approach to tackling Violence and Intimidation Against Women and Girls.

About the Policing Domestic Abuse Research Network


Building on the success of the N8 Policing Research Partnership’s knowledge exchange initiative for police practitioners and academics working to end domestic abuse, we have recently formed the Policing Domestic Abuse Research Network (PDARN). Dr Kelly Johnson and Professor Nicole Westmarland ,from the Centre for Research into Violence and Abuse at Durham University, are currently operating as the co-ordinators of the network.


PDARN is an international network for police practitioners and academic researchers interested in the area of police responses to domestic abuse (/family violence/domestic violence/battery). 


The aims of the network are to:

  • Be a supportive network for policing practitioners and academic researchers, to connect and discuss arising issues related to the policing of domestic abuse.
  • Provide a space through which network members can exchange knowledge, for example by sharing information about upcoming events, research, or emerging policy and practice.
  • Generate opportunities for collaboration across different international jurisdictions
  • Ultimately, to improve understanding and practice in the area of policing domestic abuse
