The overarching goal of this conference is to consider solutions to the social problem of gendered violence.
Intimate Partner Violence (IPV) is the most common form of violence women of all backgrounds experience. Despite the varied policy initiatives introduced in recent years, domestic violence rates in Australia and around the world remain stubbornly high. Thus, there is much to learn and do in order to achieve The National Plan's goal that "Australian women and their children live free from violence in safe communities".
The overarching goal of this conference is to consider solutions to the social problem of gendered violence with some emphasis on the role that women's economic and financial security can play. It will feature academic speakers from many different fields of expertise as well as a policy/industry panel discussion covering topics ranging from labour market outcomes, gender inequality, and financial abuse to the legal and political determinants of IPV. A list of speakers can be found here. A detailed program will be sent to registered participants closer to the date of the event.
