Domestic and Family Violence Conference

Domestic and Family Violence Conference

This conference will be held on 9 November at The University of Sydney Law School

A one day conference of academic researchers and community professionals who are working to improve our understanding of and response to Domestic and Family Violence. This conference has been initiated by the Sydney Institute of Criminology, and is supported by the University of Sydney Law School; the School of Psychology, the Women at Sydney Network; Diversity and Inclusion; and the Research Centre for Children and Families.

About the conference

Domestic and family violence is rife in Australia. Concerningly, 1 in 6 women have experienced physical or sexual violence by a current or former partner, and one woman a week is killed (AIHW, 2018).

To address this complex issue, the Sydney Institute of Criminology is organising a one-day conference on domestic and family violence. This event will take place in person at The University of Sydney Camperdown Campus on Wednesday, 9 November.

The conference will bring together a diverse group of people, including those with lived experience, academics, and professionals working in community organisations. We hope to learn from one another’s knowledge and experiences to enhance our understanding of and responses to this urgent national issue. Our aim is to start a dialogue between community organisations and researchers that may lead to mutually beneficial research and practice collaborations.
