About the project

This project was part of a 2015 Churchill Fellowship awarded to Dr Kate Fitz-Gibbon to investigate the effectiveness of innovative and recently introduced legal responses to intimate homicide in the UK, USA and Canada. The project examined the merits of the offence of coercive control in England and the proposed offence of domestic abuse in Scotland, the New York integrated domestic violence court model and domestic violence death review committees internationally.
