Mission & Vision |

Intimate Partner Violence (IPV) is a widespread social ill, affecting nearly one out of four women and one out of six men at some point in their lives. Increasingly, abusers exploit digital technologies to monitor, stalk, and harass their victims, directly harming victim safety and well-being. The current status quo is that technology empowers abusers. Despite this there is little work examining the use of technology in IPV and the development of new tools, techniques, and theories to combat technology-enabled IPV. We are a group of New York City-based researchers at Cornell TechCornell University, and NYU studying how to improve technology safety and security for victims of intimate partner violence. Our goals are to develop an in-depth understanding of technology’s role in IPV and create tools that help survivors and advocates navigate technology challenges in IPV. We currently run a Computer Security Clinic for IPV survivors. Read more >
