The SPS Centre for Gender Violence Research invites all colleagues and students to: Integrated Responses to Domestic Violence and Child Protection: Ensuring Perpetrator Accountability Seminar
This seminar will examine recent Australian research funded through Australia’s National Research Organisation for Women’s Safety (ANROWS) to examine the pathways and levels of integration between child protection and domestic violence services in five states in Australia. Key issues that assist and hamper integration will be examined. These include maintaining accountability of perpetrators where the main issues of protection are domestic violence and how do services work collaboratively with a core set of values and purpose.
