Andy will explore the current legal and technical challenges related to image-based abuse and the non-consensual sharing of intimate images. Based upon a newly published book, Andy will explore the key issues in supporting victims and contrast social and legal perspectives on how this might be tackled. In particular, he will explore the current legislative mess around protecting/prosecuting minors for engaging in these practices.
