Dr. Laura Böckmann

Laura Böckmann is a research assistant in the Department of General Education (Allgemeine Pädagogik) at the Institute of Educational Science at the University of Tübingen.

In her doctoral thesis Laura Böckmann examined loyalty as a morality of partiality and discusses, in view of the high number of unreported cases of sexual abuse, whether and if so, to what extent loyal ties can be considered a motive for non-intervention of the social environment of perpetrator and victim. The focus is on loyalties of professionals and teachers in educational institutions.

German title: „Loyalität als Motiv, über sexuellen Missbrauch zu schweigen".
The book was published by Barbara Budrich in 2021 (dissertation award "promotion 2020").

2022-2023 Laura Böckmann developed together with Eva Maria Lohner (Department of Social Pedagogy) the additional qualification program "Sexualized Violence in Pedagogical Institutions" (German: Zusatzqualifikation "Sexualisierte Gewalt in pädagogischen Einrichtungen").
