Launch of major report on temporary migration and family violence

Assoc. Prof. Marie Segrave partnered with InTouch Multicultural Centre Against Family Violence to undertake a major study of temporary migration and family violence. The report from this study will be launched on Thursday 12 October at the Monash University Law Chambers at 11am, with Helen Kapalos, the Chair of the Victorian Multicultural Commission, officially launching the report.
The findings detail specific issues pertaining to risk in the context of family violence and temporary migration, the ways in which migration status can be leveraged in the family violence context and the range of exploitative practices that occur, including the identification of trafficking and slavery-like situations of violence. The report offers recommendations on ways to address gaps in protection and support as part of Australia’s national commitment to reduce, and ultimately end, all forms of violence against women and their children by 2022.
