“Understanding and addressing youth sexual coercion and violence as a threat to young people’s sexual health in Europe (Youth Sexual Violence)”
The Y-SAV project builds a multidisciplinary network of European experts in various member states, brings together the knowledge on youth sexual aggression and victimisation in a state-of-the-art database, develops a more harmonized way of measuring Y-SAV’s prevalence and provides recommendations for strategic action to address the problem of youth sexual aggression under different circumstances in different EU member states. One of the main goals of the project is to establish a European network of experts to improve the response to youth sexual aggression and victimisation in Europe. The network fosters dialogue on youth sexual aggression and victimisation and its determinants, develops a standard set of indicators to study and monitor sexual aggression and victimisation and builds a knowledge database to inform effective policy. Y-SAV aims to establish a multidisciplinary European approach to youth sexual aggression and victimisation in Europe.
