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

The experiences of Australian women fleeing domestic violence in foreign jurisdictions to Australia as respondents in Hague child abduction cases heard by the family court.

My PhD research project will investigate the experiences of Australian women, who have been living overseas for a period of time, and had children there, who claim to have had to flee back to Australia from domestic violence. Specifically, the research focuses on their experiences with the Australian legal system, as respondents (kidnappers of their own children) in Hague child abduction cases. Qualitative confidential information will be collected from willing participants via face-to-face interviews.
