Our Work Path.
The SeGReVUni project (Visibilizing and measuring the scale and scope of sexual and gender-related violence in universities) is divided into four different phases of work. Currently, the research group is working on phases 1 and 2 of the project. On this page, you will find information on each of the phases as the project progresses.
To carry out our work during this phase, we have created a virtual online research platform through which we carry out our research work. Through this platform, we have had several virtual meetings with the International Team (IT) to agree on the results of the systematic review and analysis of documents. In addition, we have created this web page to be able to share resources, knowledge and results. This website counts with a presentation of the project, an interactive map with resources to respond to SGRV in the project area and that will be expanded and updated to embrace more cities. In addition, we have profiles on social networks such as Twitter and Facebook.
This first phase of the project consists of a systematic review of the literature on SGRV in universities developed with a particular focus on mixed online/offline realities, and an analysis of existing national and international survey documents on the detection of SGRV (especially those used in university contexts). We have held various workshops and talks and have participated in international congresses. You can check the information in our news section (only available in Spanish).
To carry out the systematic review of the literature on SGRV in universities, we have divided ourselves into three teams working. Here you will find a summary of the work carried out by each of the subgroups (they’re being translated to English).
In this second phase, we begin to weave networks with external agents. On the one hand, we’ll create a Local Team of Experts (LET). The objective is to have different meetings with the LET to discuss the preliminary analysis of the questionnaire. Together with the International Team (IT) and the LET, the dynamics and the process for the Focus Group (FG) are collectively designed.
During this second phase, we will also develop the first round of FG, these focus groups are heterogeneous since they are made up of administrative, teacher and student profiles. These FGs will take place at the participating universities and some partner universities. In addition to the focus groups, we will organize international and multidisciplinary virtual debates among the members of the university community. In this phase, we will begin to shape our questionnaire. We will work on its indicators as well as on the validation of the questionnaire with FG and groups of experts. In addition, we will also start weaving networks with institutions that will administrate the questionnaire.
The main goal of the third phase is to implement the questionnaire nationally and, possibly, internationally as a pilot test. In addition, the final questionnaire will be available in at least four languages (Spanish, English, Catalan, Basque). We want to present our instrument in different international congresses, as well as through different articles and university communication channels. After the pilot test of our questionnaire, we will analyze the results and modify the questionnaire as necessary. This new version must have expert validation, as well as a validation of the questionnaire by the university community through a virtual platform. After this new validation, the questionnaire will be administered to the universities associated with the project and the administration of the questionnaire will be promoted through our International Team and other possible universities.
The last phase of our project focuses on data analysis of the results of our questionnaire. There will be a collective interpretation of the results carried out between the research team, the IT and the LET. Once this data has been analyzed, it will be available to anyone through our website employing a report. In addition, we will publish a guide text for the use of the questionnaire for future research, and a methodological protocol will be defined to use the questionnaire together with qualitative techniques to analyze SGRV at the university from a feminist methodological perspective.
