About

Overview

Professor Sylvia Walby joined City, University of London as Professor of Sociology and Director of the interdisciplinary Violence and Society Centre on 1 March 2019. She was previously at Lancaster University where she was Distinguished Professor of Sociology, held the UNESCO Chair in Gender Research, and was Director of the Violence and Society UNESCO Centre.

Professor Walby’s interests are in re-building a theory of society that takes account of violence and of gender relations. Empirically this involves developing the concept and measurement of violence against women and men, including analysis of the increase in violent crime since the crisis using data from the Crime Survey for England and Wales. Theoretically, this involves rethinking the concept of social systems using complexity science, developing macro level concepts of gender relations including gender regimes, and theorising crisis. Professor Walby actively contributes research findings to debates on public policy on violence, gender and the EU.

Professor Walby was awarded an OBE for services to equal opportunities and diversity. She is Chair of the REF Sub-Panel for Sociology. She was the founding President of the European Sociological Association. She has been President of the International Sociological Association’s Research Committee RC02 on Economy and Society. She is a Fellow of the Academy of Social Sciences and a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts.

‘Violence and Society: Towards Zero Violence’ will be the topic of Professor Sylvia Walby’s Inaugural Lecture at City, University of London on Wednesday 9th October, 2019 at 5.30 pm in the Oliver Thompson Lecture Theatre, Tait Building.

The inaugural lecture will lay out the vision behind the new Violence and Society Centre at City, University of London.
Violence matters. It is a source of suffering, pain, and death. Its scale and significance are often underestimated in social theory, social science, official statistics, and public policy. Violence is gendered; a cause and consequence of gender inequality. What contribution can social science make to a vision of ‘zero violence’? How should violence be conceptualised, to facilitate its integration into social theory, to revise theories of society and transformation? The lecture will challenge social theory to identify and make violence visible, rather than leaving it on the margins, obscured, or ignored. How should violence be measured, to make it more visible and to confront denial, underestimation, distortion, and prejudice? The lecture will challenge the measurement of violence in official statistics, which underestimate the extent of domestic violent crime and violence against women. How should change in violence be explained, to contribute to a theory of change? The lecture will offer a theory of violence in society, connecting violence to political economy and other aspects of society. What is the role of science and statistics in the analysis of violence, and of gender-based violence? The lecture will offer a vision of the potential contribution of social science to building the knowledge base needed to contribute to a vision of ‘zero violence’.

There will be a drinks reception following the lecture and all are welcome to attend.

The Oliver Thompson Lecture Theatre, Tait Building is accessible via the University's main entrance in Northampton Square.

Study on the economic, social and human costs of trafficking

Start Date: 21 May 2019
End Date: 20 February 2020
Title: Study on the economic, social and human costs of trafficking
Total Amount: GBP 270,764,17
Funder: European Commission: Directorate-General Migration and Home Affairs
Abstract: Trafficking in human beings harms not only victims but society as a whole. This project will estimate the costs to society within the European Union Member States. All forms of trafficking of women, men and children will be addressed, whether for sexual exploitation, labour exploitation, forced begging or domestic servitude. The social costs accounted for are; specialised services; health services; law enforcement; lost economic output and intangibles (measured as quality adjusted life years). This establishes a rigorous evidence base and expands the theory on trafficking in human beings and society.

Towards a Directive on violence against women: Analysis of its legal grounds and the cost of violence against women

Start Date: 1 December 2013
End Date: 31 December 2014
Title: Towards a Directive on violence against women: Analysis of its legal grounds and the cost of violence against women
Total Amount: EUR 14,500
Funder: European Parliament, European Value Added Unit
Abstract: This study investigated aspects of the basis for a possible Directive of the EU on Violence Against Women. Building on previous work on costing gender-based violence, the study found that the cost of inaction was considerably greater than the cost of action. It considers the extent to which the Treaties confer on the European Union the legal competence to develop a Directive on Violence against Women, concluding that there is scope for a directive.

Is the rate of domestic violence increasing or decreasing? A re-analysis of the British Crime Survey

Start Date: 1 April 2013
End Date: 30 September 2014
Title: Is the rate of domestic violence increasing or decreasing? A re-analysis of the British Crime Survey
Total Amount: GBP 199,000
Funder: Economic and Social Research Council
Abstract: This project re-analysed data from the Crime Survey for England and Wales. The results show that, during the economic crisis, there was an increase in violent crime, reversing the long-run fall. The increase is driven by violence against women committed by domestic relations. The increase is made visible by removing the arbitrary maximum cap of five crimes traditionally imposed by the Office for National Statistics (ONS) on the number of incidents reported to the survey included in published statistics, while attending to volatility by using three-year moving averages.

Estimating the costs of gender-based violence in the European Union

Start Date: 1 January 2013
End Date: 1 January 2014
Title: Estimating the costs of gender-based violence in the European Union
Total Amount: EURO 58,000
Funder: European Institute for Gender Equality
Abstract: This projected reviewed developments in methodologies for estimating the costs of gender-based violence in order to identify best practice and estimated the costs of gender-based violence within the EU. The project found that gender-based violence costs the EU28 €259 billion each year. This is due to lost economic output because of injuries, the use of public services (e.g. health, criminal justice), and the public’s valuation of the physical and emotional impacts.

End Date: 31 December 2004
Title: Estimating the economic and social costs of domestic violence against women
Total Amount: GBP 56,000
Funder: Department for Trade and Industry, Women and Equality Unit
Abstract: This study estimated the costs of domestic violence by drawing upon a range of data sources, including the British Crime Survey. The study found that domestic violence costs the UK £23 billion a year. The findings and methodology have been used by the Home Office, other government departments, local government and non-governmental providers of services to estimate the cost of domestic violence (and gender-based violence more generally) and contributed to decision-making over service provision. The methods have been adapted for use in other countries, including New Zealand and Canada, disseminated by the UN (e.g. UN Women in 2011).
