The #MeToo movement sparked many debates and increased the demand for more problematized perspectives on the issue of sexual harassment.
Bringing researchers, writers, and policymakers in the Nordic region into dialogue in an ambitious volume, this book opens for new understandings of sexual harassment. It asks what role juridical frameworks can and should play in the prevention of sexual harassment and how the image of Nordic states as gender equal, colour blind and with strong welfare affects the work against sexual harassment in the region.
By re-imagining justice, violence, exploitation and work, this book offers knowledge that is of importance to everyone working to prevent sexual harassment through research, policy or everyday practice.
