Gender & Family Violence: New Frameworks in Prevention

Family violence is the most common type of violence against women and children worldwide and the leading cause of death amongst Australian women aged between 15 and 44.

Each week in Australia at least one woman is killed by a man, typically an intimate (ex)partner.

This Program aims to enhance women and children’s security by creating new knowledge about the risks of family violence and family violence homicides.

The Program will develop an evidence base for reforms aimed at effectively implementing a more risk sensitive approach to family violence and reducing the associated harms to women and children.
