Improved accountability – the role of perpetrator intervention systems
Using a mixed-methods approach, the research will involve ten empirical sub-studies. This project will examine various dimensions of PI Systems and the pathways that have evolved for working with perpetrators, including:
- an evidence review of accountability and responsibility in relation to perpetrators and responses to perpetrators;
- a systematic review and meta-analysis of the effectiveness of civil law protection orders;
- a new conceptualisation to guide and inform the prevention of men’s violence against women;
- mapping exercise on how the tracking, engagement and retention of perpetrators within PI Systems can be enhanced across four jurisdictions;
- case studies of Victorian multi-agency integrated responses;
- case studies of West Australian regional area responses to DFV;
- case studies of Queensland journeys of participants and facilitators through a men’s behaviour change program;
- case study of New South Wales’ sibling sexual abuse program;
- the development and application of a social return on investment methodology to men’s behaviour change programs; and
- the development and trial of a national minimum data set for men’s behaviour change programs.
