Additional projects announced in 2017-20 Research Stream

ANROWS is delighted to announce funding for two new projects from the 2017 ANROWS Research Priorities grants round.

Ms Miriam Bevis of the Central Australian Aboriginal Legal Aid Service in Alice Springs, NT, will lead the project Kungas’ Trauma experiences and effects on behaviour in Central Australia, which will study Central Australian Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women’s experiences of trauma, violence and incarceration. Professor Donna Chung of Curtin University, WA, will lead the project Prioritising women’s safety in Australian perpetrator interventions: The purpose and practices of partner contact.

These projects join the 10 successful projects announced in August from our 2017 ANROWS Research Priorities grants round with a total value of approximately $2 million. This program of research will produce research under the National Research Agenda to support the implementation of the National Plan to Reduce Violence against Women and their Children 2010-2022.  

ANROWS Chair Emeritus Professor Anne Edwards said the projects comprising the 2017 Research Priorities were an ambitious and far-reaching program that encompasses a range of practice contexts, topics, and jurisdictions involving a diverse group of researchers and research partnerships.

“ANROWS is proud to fund these important research projects, and we look forward to seeing their influence in policy and practice to help stop violence against women and their children”, Edwards said.

The full range of projects in the 2017 Research Priorities reflect ANROWS’s commitment to engaging with priority populations and ensuring that all research is done in a way that addresses intersectionality through the research methodologies, and is effective, sensitive and appropriate for the communities that are participating in the studies. Priority populations addressed in these projects include Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women; culturally and linguistically diverse women; older women; women with a disability; women who are, or have been, incarcerated;  lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans* and intersex women, and women who live in rural and remote areas.
