ANROWS is calling for submissions for session proposals and posters for the National Research Conference.

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.

These reflections will inform conversations about the way in which evidence is being applied in policy and practice to reduce violence against women and their children.

Session proposals

ANROWS recognises that practitioners, policy-makers and researchers are most successful as agents of change when they work in partnership. To that end, rather than featuring single-author presentations, the conference will be structured around conversational panels across five themes:

  • Sexual violence
  • Perpetrator programs and interventions
  • Services and systems
  • Experiences of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women and children
  • Engaging men.

Each panel will be 85 minutes long, including time for audience discussion.

ANROWS encourages submissions from panels comprised of researchers, survivor-advocates, policy-makers and practitioners. Learnings from women with lived experience of violence is central to an in-depth discussion of what is working.
