28 – 30 APRIL 2020 · ADELAIDE

Australia’s National Research Organisation for Women’s Safety (ANROWS) welcomes you to attend the National Research Conference on Violence against Women and their Children. Explore how practitioners and policy-makers, are using the evidence to understand, respond to and prevent violence against women and their children.

ANROWS National Research Conference

Registrations Now Open

With the release of the 4th Action Plan of the National Plan to Reduce Violence against Women and their Children 2010-2022, national focus has turned to collaboration across all jurisdictions, and providing a platform for future policy.

This conference will bring together researchers, policy-makers, practitioners 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 be structured around thematic conversational panels, each including facilitators with diverse backgrounds and expertise, including women with lived experience. This format will offer unique opportunities for conference participants to engage in discussion and contribute to our understanding of “what works”.
