Temporary migration and family violence report launch

Public launch: Temporary migration and family violence: an analysis of victimisation, vulnerability and support
The report details findings from research conducted by Monash University with InTouch Multicultural Centre Against Family Violence, regarding the experiences of family violence among migrant women living in Australia on temporary visas.
It is the first major study that offers a significant evidence base (drawing on 300 cases) to examine family violence, migration status and a range of experiences of exploitation and abuse that have largely not been the focus of family violence responses to date (including, but not limited to, trafficking and slavery-like situations). The report offers recommendations on ways to address gaps in protection as part of Australia’s national commitment to reduce, and ultimately end, all forms of violence against women and their children by 2022.
