The laboratory on delinquency and sexuality at the Université du Québec en Outaouais is a place where research activities revolve around the themes of delinquency and sexuality. Although some projects focus exclusively on one theme or the other, the majority of the research conducted in the laboratory focuses on phenomena combining sexuality and delinquency, namely sexual delinquency and coercive sexual behavior. Thus, the laboratory's mission is to contribute to the updating of the knowledge surrounding sexual coercion and the risk factors associated with it. Precisely, we focus our research on the study of an adult population having commission of sexual acts of coercive nature, whether judicially or not.
