Understanding the role of Law and Culture in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities in responding to and preventing family violence

Jul 17, 2020

Australia’s National Research Organisation for Women’s Safety (ANROWS) has published a research report titled “Understanding the role of Law and Culture in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities in responding to and preventing family violence.” The report builds on previous advocacy for community-led approaches to family violence that incorporate Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander justice models that recognise and respect Aobirignal and Torres Strait Islander Law and Culture. The report found that responses to family violence in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities should include traditional dispute resolution processes, with interventions targeting the whole family rather than just the individual.
