State of knowledge

Meta-evaluation of existing interagency partnerships, collaboration, coordination and/or integrated interventions and service responses to violence against women: State of knowledge paper

This paper presents a preliminary overview of the literature on the partnerships, collaborations and integrated interventions in relation to domestic and family violence and sexual assault in the international and Australian context.

The paper finds that the current Australian policy context prioritises integration and multi-sectoral responses to address the limitations of traditional service delivery and the negative consequences of fragmentation and disconnection. Despite the significant challenges to integrated responses, and the limited evidence base on effective responses (which is improving with a growing number of evaluation studies in Australia and internationally), the anecdotal and empirically derived potential benefits appear to outweigh the alternatives.
