In November 2022 Monash University was awarded $34.9 million by the Australian Research Council (ARC) to lead the new ARC Centre of Excellence for the Elimination of Violence Against Women.

The funding will support seven years of research to understand the problem of violence against women and address the structural drivers that cause and compound it. Based in the Faculty of Arts, the Centre will pioneer evidence-based approaches to improve policy and practice. The empowerment of Indigenous ethics and leadership of research will be used to investigate how violence is shaped by dominant beliefs and institutions in communities where colonial, racialised and gender hierarchies apply.

The Monash Gender and Family Violence Prevention Centre is at the forefront of research and education aimed at preventing family violence. Based in the Faculty of Arts, the centre contributes to transformative social change aimed at ending family violence by providing an evidence base for policy change that better supports and protects those experiencing family violence and addresses the cultural and economic drivers that underpin it.

The Centre hosted regular events throughout 2022 as part of its Seminar Series, and provided submissions and gave evidence to governments relating to the Independent Commission of Inquiry into Queensland Police Service responses to domestic and family violence, as well as the Queensland Women’s Safety and Justice Taskforce.

The Monash Gender, Peace and Security (GPS) Centre's vision is to build gender-inclusive research evidence to deliver peace and security globally. Research informs scholarly debate, policy development and implementation, and public understanding about the gendered nature of insecurity and the search for peace. In addition to research and community engagement, Monash GPS academics engage in undergraduate and graduate teaching, executive education and PhD supervision.

In 2022 GPS released its final reports for Gender Analysis of Violent Extremism and the Impact of COVID-19 on Peace and Security in ASEAN, commissioned by UN Women, and A Global Review of the Development of Military Gender Advisor Capabilities, examining the effectiveness of military gender advisor capabilities around the world.
