ANROWS National Research Conference

Call for submissions

With the release of the 4th Action Plan national focus has turned to improving existing initiatives, and providing a platform for future policy.

This conference will bring together researchers, practitioners policy-makers, and survivor-advocates to discuss “what works?” This includes reflecting on what works for whom and in what circumstances, what “working” means, and how we know an initiative is working. These reflections will inform shared conversations about how we demonstrate the evidence of impact and use that evidence to influence policy and practice.


The conference will bring together researchers, practitioners, policy-makers, and survivor-advocates to discuss “what works?”
The inclusion of women with diverse lived experiences of violence—and the systems that aim to prevent or respond to violence—is central to an understanding of what is working, and why.

More speakers to be announced soon.
