Innovative Justice Responses to Sexual Violence: A Global Analysis
2008 - 2011
Professor Kathleen Daly
Aligned with United Nations initiatives to end violence against women, Australian governments have emphasised that gender violence is a crime. This is correct, but the practical problem is what to do next. The project will benefit Australia by identifying innovative ways of responding to sexual violence that are practical, effective, and meaningful for victims’ justice needs and economically viable for government. In taking a global perspective, more imaginative responses to violence in Australian Indigenous communities will be identified. In studying countries where Australia has a security and peacekeeping presence, the role of those forces in maintaining security for women and children can be enhanced.
