Monday, 2nd May 2016

ANROWS Chair Emeritus Professor Anne R. Edwards AO delivered the opening address at ANROWS's inaugural national research conference, on Tuesday 23 February 2016. The Emeritus Professor's address Time for renewed national commitment to action, focuses on the period since Australian governments accepted the main recommendations of the Time for Action report, and developed the National Plan to Reduce Violence against Women and their Children 2010-2022. It looks at principal areas of activity (including research), identifies trends and gaps in activity to date, and provides the basis for the examination of research conducted at the conference and consideration of how it will contribute to future policy and practice.
