Project funding: Australian Research Council
About the project
This project aims to investigate one of Australia’s most pressing social problems: domestic violence and the emerging use of digital technology to enact and escalate abuse and stalking. Technology-facilitated domestic and family violence threatens psychological, emotional and physical wellbeing and safety (and signifies risk of homicide), and
so warrants attention. Existing prevention and regulation responses – including from the community, industry and State – are reviewed. The research expects to provide an evidence base to enhance and develop innovative best-practice and policy.
