Our research

Violence against women and 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.


News and events

ANROWS hosts events as part of its knowledge transfer and exchange work, including public lectures, workshops and research launches. Details of upcoming ANROWS activities and news are available from the list on the right.



ANROWS was established by the Commonwealth and all state and territory governments of Australia to produce, disseminate and assist in applying evidence for policy and practice addressing violence against women and their children.



To support the take-up of evidence, ANROWS offers a range of resources developed from research to support practitioners and policy-makers in delivering evidence-based interventions.

State of knowledge

Current knowledge on specific issues related to violence against women and children.

These papers draw on published literature, existing empirical research (including research produced under ANROWS’s research program) and practice knowledge.


They have also included reporting from stakeholder consultations and mapping exercises (such as mapping of current research, data, available services, programs, projects or legislation).

This work is now incorporated into the final research reports of ANROWS-funded research projects.


State of knowledge papers (formerly “Landscapes”) will only be published in the case of a standalone state of knowledge project.
