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.

EXTERNALLY FUNDED RESEARCH PROJECTS

A community-led approach to preventing gendered violence at school

Background

Gendered violence in schools is exceptionally common and damaging on both individual and community levels. Anti-bullying policies designed to reduce this violence have so far failed to make a meaningful difference.

Aim

This project aims to position school communities as experts on how gendered violence may be reduced.

Methods

This project uses an innovative, community-led research approach.

Significance

In partnership with four secondary schools across two states, this research project will be the first to enable students and teachers to investigate how school policies, spaces and activities influence gendered violence. It will produce evidence from the ground up about how different school communities can disrupt gendered violence in inventive and contextually appropriate ways.
