ANROWS Research Program

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.

ANROWS is committed to reducing the burden of violence against women by supporting research that allows us to better understand this complex issue in terms of effects on the community, how best to address the problem and how to work towards its eradication.

The ANROWS Research Program will produce research under the National Research Agenda to Reduce Violence against Women and their Children to support the National Plan to Reduce Violence against Women and their Children 2010–2022.  Current and past areas of research and projects within the ANROWS Research Program include:
