This paper explores efforts across Egyptian universities to enhance responsiveness and accountability for addressing and mitigating sexual harassment on campus.
Though not a new phenomenon, harassment in Egyptian universities differs from other places in terms of scale, frequency, aggressiveness and the characteristics of perpetrators and survivors within the university settings. The paper is divided into three parts. The first part unpacks the research question and tries to build the relationship between the main concepts of collective action, accountability and networking. The second part presents the methodology with a particular focus on action research. The third part analyses the findings of the research.
