Our research

Violence against women and their children affects everybody. It impacts on the health, wellbeing and safety of a significant proportion of Australians throughout all states and territories and places an enormous burden on the nation’s economy across family and community services, health and hospitals, income-support and criminal justice systems.


News and events

ANROWS hosts events as part of its knowledge transfer and exchange work, including public lectures, workshops and research launches. Details of upcoming ANROWS activities and news are available from the list on the right.



ANROWS was established by the Commonwealth and all state and territory governments of Australia to produce, disseminate and assist in applying evidence for policy and practice addressing violence against women and their children.



To support the take-up of evidence, ANROWS offers a range of resources developed from research to support practitioners and policy-makers in delivering evidence-based interventions.

Reflecting on 2015

Thursday, 17th December 2015

ANROWS will close on Thursday 24 December 2015, and reopen on Monday 4 January 2016.


2015 has been a big year for ANROWS. 

By the end of the year we will have published one Horizons (research report); 15 Landscapes (state of knowledge papers); and three Compasses (research to practice and policy papers); as well as our regular publications Notepad (fortnightly) and Footprints (quarterly) and two inConversation interviews. Please see below for details!

This year we also started work on the Diversity Data Project, and the Family Violence Index. We held two event series with well-known international scholars, and presented at multiple conferences.

The twenty projects in our 2014-16 research program have also been busily producing new evidence. We look forward to bringing you more Landscapes papers and Horizons reports in 2016. 

As the year draws to a close we’d like to acknowledge and thank our stakeholders for your support, ideas and feedback. ANROWS will close on Thursday 24 December 2015, and reopen on Monday 4 January 2016. We wish you a safe and happy holiday season.
