New technologies can bring immense benefits in a domestic situation, safeguarding us, easing our routines and enriching our experiences. Unfortunately, they can also be exploited to intimidate, restrict or control another person’s behaviour - known as Coercive Control. There is no easy answer to ending technology facilitated abuse, however we all have an ethical responsibility to do what we can. Coercive Control Resistant Design is about subtle design decisions that need to be made; balancing the intended and unintended consequences of our technology. While Coercive Control is often thought about in the context of women, it has wider ramifications in society, for example boss & subordinate, elderly person & carer - in fact, any relationship where there is an imbalance of power.
