Violence against women and their children affects everybody.

EXTERNALLY FUNDED RESEARCH PROJECTS

Domestic and family violence and border-related harm

Aim

This project aims to explore how Australia's migration system intersects with the experience of domestic and family violence for temporary visa holders.

Methods

This project draws on the accounts of former temporary visa holders via interviews in Australia, Thailand, Vietnam and India, and examines the migration system and processes evident in formal accounts including coronial findings and sentencing judgements.

Significance

The project expects to generate new knowledge about connections between migration systems and domestic and family violence. This should provide significant benefits by laying the groundwork for reform and recommendations to support policymakers and stakeholders more broadly to create better conditions for women’s safety.
