What we know about intimate partner homicide in Australia is, overwhelmingly, what we know about intimate partner homicide offenders. Insight into victims is crucially lacking, and there is in addition an overreliance on sentencing remarks in understanding the circumstances surrounding these lethal incidents, due to the lack of quality and consistent data that can be extracted from the results of coronial inquests.
This webinar follows on from the 2022 ANROWS Conference Evidence Presentation on the same topic. The panellists will unpack the available data on intimate partner homicide, address the gaps in our knowledge of these homicides and discuss the need for institutional and professional accountability when it comes to preventing the intimate partner homicide deaths of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander victims.
The discussion will be facilitated by Padma Raman PSM (CEO, ANROWS) with:
- Anna Butler, Manager, NSW Domestic Violence Death Review Team, Department of Communities and Justice (and member of the Australian Domestic and Family Violence Death Review Network)
- Dr Hayley Boxall, Research Manager, Violence against Women and Children Research Program, Australian Institute of Criminology
- Dr Kyllie Cripps, Scientia Associate Professor, Faculty of Law and Justice and Co-Convenor of the Gendered Violence Research Network, University of New South Wales
There will be a live Q&A at the end of the session.
The webinar is open to anyone and free to attend. Live captioning will be available for the webinar and a recording of the webinar will be available on the ANROWS website.
