(Photo: Thinkstock) Related News Women who prefer physically formidable and dominant mates (PPFDM) have a tendency to feel more at risk of crime regardless of the situation or risk factors present suggests a new research The research showed that women who are attracted to dominant men generally feel more at risk of being victimised even when their risk of victimisation is actually low PPFDM appears to be associated with women’s self-assessed vulnerability Women with strong PPFDM feel relatively more at risk fearful and vulnerable to criminal victimisation compared to their counterparts regardless of whether there are situational risk factors present explained the researchers “Our research suggests that the relationship between feelings of vulnerability as measured by fear of crime and women’s preference for physically formidable and dominant mates is stable and does not update according to environmental circumstances or relative level of protection needed” said Hannah Ryder researcher from the University of Leicester in Britain Further women’s fear of crime significantly changed in response to crime signas — for example location and time of day — and that overall fear of crime was related to PPFDM However the relationship between PPFDM and fear did not vary in relation to risk situation perpetrator gender or crime type suggesting that the psychological mechanisms underlying the relationship between perceived risk of victimisation and PPFDM are general in nature The study published in the journal Evolution and Human Behaviour involved assessing whether the relationship between fear of crime and PPFDM was higher for crimes that cause relatively higher physical and psychological pain such as sexual assault Across two studies in the lab and field women observed images and real life situations that varied in the risk of crime such as crime hotspots and safespots and were asked to rate their perceived risk of victimisation — a measure of fear of crime — of various crimes This included male — and female — perpetrated physical assault and robbery and male-perpetrated rape In both studies the research team also administered a scale that measured women’s PPFDM and assessed the association between women’s PPFDM score and their risk perception scores For all the latest Lifestyle News download Indian Express App More Related NewsBy: IANS |

and eliminate them Related News Administrative reform should be AAP’s focus not sting operations By campaigning on an anti-corruption plank and vowing to cleanse government the AAP struck a chord with the middle class and youth But the promise to deliver corruption-free governance must be based on an appreciation of the root causes of corruption Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s approach to the problem has been impulsive at best Kejriwal has spent more than a decade in government service He should know how and why corruption exists He must be aware of former central vigilance commissioner NVittal’s tireless advocacy for adopting preventive measures and improving systems to tackle corruption In this context it’s unfortunate that after taking oath as CM Kejriwal told people not to refuse paying a bribe when it is demanded but to encourage the demand so that the bribe-seeker can be caught in the act For him the solution to a corruption-free government lies in catching officials by entrapment rather than removing the root cause of the malaise Tackling corruption by encouraging people to conduct stings may be a thrilling prospect for some The recent suspension and transfer of some Delhi Jal Board officials after a sting operation by a news channel may have some impact But officials who are prone to corruption will not vanish just because of stings They will lie low till the air clears and ultimately resurface if the system continues to allow them to make money Before we examine the desirability of sting operations it’s worth understanding the procedures that are followed by anti-corruption bureaus (ACBs) vigilance bureaus and the CBI in “trap” cases The ACBs subject complaints about officials demanding bribes to verification processes It’s only after the authenticity of the complaint has been established that the process for laying the trap is initiated Even though the law does not demand it bureaus insist on verification to ensure that unscrupulous complainants do not misuse the anti-corruption machinery to settle personal scores These days bureaus use forensic analysis of voice samples authentication of video recording etc to corroborate evidence In contrast sting operations presuppose that the entire range of issues for which people approach government is solvable within the existing framework of rules Persons advocating stings to counter corruption are oblivious to the fact that for every bribe taker there is a giver Also a sting is entrapment and its legality is still nebulous There are several doubts about their admissibility as evidence This being the case the vigilance department of the police will have to further investigate stings carried out by members of the public which will only result in a waste of man hours and resources In fact courts have frowned upon “chance traps” laid by ACBs without establishing the demand for a bribe Experience shows that often bribe givers don’t hesitate in bribing to get their work done even when their case does not comply with the rules Examples of renovations that violate rules and paying “brokerage charges” to “agents” at regional transport offices or passport offices are rife This brokerage — paid entirely in cash without a receipt — is shared by agents with officials in order to “expedite” work Shouldn’t Kejriwal persuade people not to pay such agents for these “services” Shouldn’t he devise ways to make official transactions and interactions hassle free and transparent People have become so cynical that they are complicit in this arrangement and consider it convenient because they feel government will never simplify procedures To be fair to people when one considers the transaction costs — starting from making a complaint to the ACB to the completion of the trial — one may feel that it’s far more sensible to part with some money than to go through the rigmarole But the procedure is no different when a sting is followed up with an investigation In fact the onus of authenticating the recorded evidence will be on the person who conducted the sting Add to this the uncertainty of the legal admissibility of the evidence and the whole exercise may turn out to be a damp squib Stings may create a false sense of cleansing for a short time But they constitute entrapment and do not obey the rule of law They may result in the suspension of the involved officials who may have to be reinstated after some time as such evidence is seldom infallible Further sting operations are likely to create an atmosphere of mistrust We have to acknowledge that widespread corruption is a direct result of multiple failures in governance A sustained anti-corruption campaign has to identify corruption-prone sectors analyse the factors that enable corruption and eliminate them through systemic changes Legal provisions however stringent cannot substitute for good business processes which govern transactions Kejriwal would do well to encourage his departmental heads to suggest ways to simplify procedures to minimise corruption and implement them Otherwise he will miss the opportunity to reform governance and present himself as

expanding challenge to India’s regional primacy While Prime Minister Narendra Modi seeks to deepen bilateral and global cooperation with China in the formal talks with Xi in Delhi he can’t ignore China’s growing capacity to limit India’s freedom of action in the subcontinent and the Indian Ocean For decades India had to endure the multiple negative consequences for its national security from China’s all-weather partnership with Pakistan and cope with Beijing’s quest for influence in Nepal Bhutan and Bangladesh Delhi must now prepare to deal with China’s emergence as the most powerful extra-regional actor in the Maldives and Sri Lanka In Malé and Colombo Xi arrived to enthusiastic welcomes and unveiled China’s impressive plans to boost economic cooperation with both countries Delhi has no reason to object since India too is inviting China’s investments After all China is the world’s second largest economy and the biggest trading partner to most countries in the world But some of China’s economic cooperation in the subcontinent is coming at India’s expense The Maldives which cancelled the Malé airport contract with the Indian company GMR has now handed over the modernisation of the airport to a Chinese company Worse still Malé and Colombo are playing the China card against India and Xi is happily encouraging them In both countries Xi affirmed that China does not interfere in their internal affairs and will oppose others doing so The reference to India which has been involved in the democratic transition of the Maldives and promotion of Tamil minority rights in Sri Lanka is obvious That China’s active political cultivation of the two island-states is driven by a desire to gain strategic access to critical locations in the Indian Ocean has been evident for some time Not surprisingly Malé and Colombo have embraced Xi’s proposal for a maritime silk road Xi announced plans to intensify defence and maritime cooperation with both the Maldives and Sri Lanka As Malé and Colombo come close to crossing India’s implicit red lines on security cooperation with third countries Delhi will need to do much more than lodge protests Nor is it enough to merely proclaim as the NDA government has done that neighbourhood diplomacy is a top priority If it wants to meet China’s challenge Delhi needs to reform root and branch the manner in which it does political and
