This research program aims to increase knowledge and understanding about the causes, consequences, prevention and control of violence. This research helps inform government departments about effective policies and programs, raise public awareness and consciousness about the cost and consequences of violence, and develop effective prevention strategies. The program supports the development of research collaborations and partnerships with local, national and international partners and dovetails with the existing Violence Research and Prevention program thematic research network across Griffith.
