Research

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.

GOVERNMENT RELATIONS

Inquiries and submissions


A list of active, or recently closed inquiries and submissions relevant to domestic and family violence, sexual assault, and women’s safety.


Various governments and independent organisations undertake inquiries into topical issues, and seek submissions from interested parties in relevant sectors. The results of these inquiries lead to recommendations put to governments to seek change to policies and procedures.

 

The submission process enables organisations and individuals to have their say, and contribute to law reform. Below is a list of active, or recently closed inquires and submissions relevant to domestic and family violence, and women’s safety. See this library reading list for resources to assist with writing a submission, and this outline of the Australian policy context for women’s safety.
