Title: Qualification, declaration and denonciation of sexual violence suffered by men
Supervisors: Florence Maillochon and Magali Mazuy
Abstract: The objective of this thesis is to examine the specificity of sexual violence against men, compared to women, by including it in a conceptualisation of gender-based violence. The analysis focuses on the conditions where sexual violence is committed, its perception by men who experience it, the process of qualifying violence as such and the process of breaking the silence (saying violence). This research is based on analysis of quantitative data surveys conducted on a large sample of respondents representative of the French population (CSF and Virage surveys). From both surveys, typologies of violence are developed and make it possible to isolate the contexts of sexual violence against men, to study the power relationships (gender, age, sexuality, class) when it takes place and over the life course of men who have been victims. In addition, this research examines the relation to violence, to gender and to sexuality norms of men who report sexual violence during their life (principally in childhood and adolescence, perpetrated by other men). Quantitative analysis are followed by biographical interviews conducted by telephone with men who reported sexual violence on the Virage survey, to explore their life course: the life course of violence ; the process of the silencing of sexual violence and breaking it, with special interest in the qualification, the enunciation process and/or the denunciation of abuse ; and finally, both of these forms of life course are explored according to the entire biography of men who are victims (family, domestic, sexual, professional and health).
