Georgina Calvert-Lee considers how universities might ensure that their disciplinary procedures are demonstrably fair to victims of harassment and sexual misconduct.
So after suffering the humiliation and trauma of being raped, harassed or discriminated against – experiences in which the victim’s own agency has been denied and voice stifled – the university performs a final violation by denying her a voice or presence in the so-called complaints process. It is no wonder that so many students and staff feel as injured by the way the university treated them after making a complaint as by the original misconduct complained of.
