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.


Child and adolescent victimisation: Prevalence and predictors in Australia


This is a study to determine the rate and predictors of child and adolescent experiences of victimisation in an Australian population-based sample. This study will address widespread concerns about the experiences of violence by Australian children. No previous population-based studies have addressed this issue. Expected outcomes are published papers in major journals and policy-relevant data provided to Commonwealth and state governments as well as relevant NGOs. The consequences of child and adolescent victimisation are substantial. This study will both point to the causes and prioritise strategies to reduce the level of violence experienced by children.
