ANROWS conducts in-house research and engages Australia’s most eminent researchers through a grants program under Australia’s National Research Agenda to Reduce Violence against Women and their Children.
ANROWS maintains the ANROWS Library, a free-to-use database that brings together national and international literature on violence against women and their children (both academic and grey literature). ANROWS also has a Register of Active Research, highlighting ongoing and recently completed Australian research projects on violence against women and their children. This register aims to create a picture of the current violence against women research landscape in Australia and highlight areas for further research.
ANROWS has also compiled a selection of resources for students and others working on action research projects in the field of violence against women, including webinars, evaluation tools, guides to ethical research and other related links.
