Abstract:
This thesis investigates the rates, aetiology and consequences of physical and psychological intimate partner violence (IPV) in international University student samples using a gender-inclusive perspective. Part I of the thesis examined the prevalence of IPV and methodological considerations of empirical studies that investigate this. Review findings highlight the importance of methodological rigour of surveys to estimate the rate of IPV by both sexes and how low levels of national gender empowerment for women are associated with higher levels of female victimisation. Empirical research showed motives and beliefs about IPV by both sexes in England and Mexico are chivalrous and that perpetration is determined by a complex web of risk factors, with important differences amongst types of perpetrators, for male and female offenders. Part II provides research that explores the associations of risk and mental health factors of IPV in female and male perpetrators and victims. Empirical research confirms that adverse mental health issues in male and female IPV perpetrators and victims tend to be similar, with important differences amongst types of aggressive and controlling perpetrators and victims. In conclusion, this thesis demonstrates the complexity of IPV and the need for a gender inclusive approach to research, practice and policy in this domain.
