What is it about?
When we give consent, e.g. to a tattoo or medical procedure, we generate a permission for others. Yet, consent normally requires the absence of coercion. In this paper, I analyse the relation between consent and coercion in greater detail, with a particular focus on cases with three parties.

Why is it important?
Social relationships and consent interactions are increasingly complex. As a result, the standard two-party model of a consent-giver and a consent-receiver rarely reflects our reality. For this reason, it is key to understand how a person's consent is affected by their social background more generally. This paper aims to make a contribution in this regard and explains how third-party coercion affects consent.
