EXTERNALLY FUNDED RESEARCH PROJECTS
Improving the policing of gender violence in the Global South
Violence against women is twice the global average in Pacific Island communities, yet most approaches about how to police it have come from the Global North. This project addresses this mismatch by discovering new ways to improve the policing of gender violence by testing unique models of women-led policing. Expected outcomes include new evidence to improve the policing of gender violence, enhance victims' and survivors' experiences, and reform laws. Expected benefits include better outcomes for victims and survivors, improved policing practices and reductions in gender violence. The project will foster increased engagement, knowledge transfer and partnership between Australia and Pacific Island communities in line with the Australian Government's strategic priorities.
