Is This Coercive Control? Coercive control has been illegal in England since 2015, but how well do people understand it, and would they be able to spot it if they saw it happening? To find out, journalist and presenter Ellie Flynn brings together a group of 20 young people aged 18-30 for a social experiment, to see if they understand what constitutes coercive control.Coercive control describes a pattern of behaviour by an abuser to harm, punish or frighten their victim. Over the last 18 months, coercive control has hit the headlines following the re-trial of Sally Challen over the killing of her husband. Over the course of two days, the group watch a specially-written drama telling the story of the relationship between Rachel and Alex, which ends with an accusation of coercive control.As the story gradually unfolds over six parts, the group are invited to come to their own conclusions on what they see, and decide whether they think what they have witnessed constitutes a crime in the eyes of the law.
