Dr Emma Forbes completed her PhD with SCCJR (University of Glasgow). Her thesis explored victims’ experiences of the court process and accessing justice.  It included listening to the stories of many women.

Emma was awarded a Scottish Justice Fellowship, working with the Scottish Government and the Scottish Centre for Crime and Justice Research to translate the research findings into accessible policy.

In 2021 Emma published her book, ‘Victims Experiences of the Criminal Justice Response to Domestic Abuse: Beyond GlassWalls’, Emerald Publishing Ltd.

For more information about Emma’s work please visit Glass Wall Arts – Shining a Light on Domestic Abuse which is a stained-glass art installation which raises awareness of domestic abuse through art.
