ANROWS Horizons: Research papers
Technical reports on empirical research produced under ANROWS’s Research Program. These in-depth reports provide methodological detail and findings that are likely to be of primary use to researchers or professionals significantly engaged with the topic.
ANROWS Landscapes: State of knowledge papers
Medium length papers that scope current knowledge on an issue related to violence against women and their children. Papers will draw on published literature, existing empirical research (including research produced under ANROWS’s Research Program), and/or practice knowledge. They may also include reporting from stakeholder consultations and/or mapping exercises (such as mapping of current research, data, available services, programs, projects, or legislation).
ANROWS Compass: Research to practice and policy papers
Concise papers that summarise key findings of research on violence against women and their children, including research produced under ANROWS’s research program, and provide advice on the implications for policy and practice. The Compass paper is the main resource from ANROWS research projects and are written in plain English. They are designed to be useful to a wide range of stakeholders including policy-makers and practitioners without background in the area of study. The paper may include resources such as info-graphics and other visual representations of the findings.
ANROWS’s work including submissions, speeches, presentations and multimedia publications.

Despite the increasingly high profile of domestic and family violence (DFV) in Australian society, surprisingly little is known in the public domain about the ways women’s specialist services provide help to the victims/survivors.
Although immigrant and refugee women in Australia face particular barriers to accessing services aimed at preventing and responding to family violence, the understanding of the character and context of this problem is limited.
Exposure to intimate partner violence (IPV) has serious health outcomes for Australian women and their children, and its prevention is a recognised national priority.
The research report builds on the literature review contained in the ANROWS Landscapes paper “Building effective policies and services to promote women’s economic security following domestic violence: State of knowledge paper” (Cortis and Bullen, 2015).
This research project reviewed and analysed data to identify key program elements, policy contexts and learnings from the implementation of integrated responses in all Australian jurisdictions.
This project aimed to establish the extent and nature of reporting of violence against women by the Australian media to inform future strategies for change.
Establishing the Connection was a Victorian-based study that aimed to examine the intersections between alcohol and other drug (AOD) use and sexual victimisation and trauma, how both support sectors currently work together, and how they can respond more effectively to the needs of those affected.
This research project provided a national mapping and meta-evaluation of the key features of “safe at home” programs. “Safe at home” programs enhance safety and prevent homelessness for women and their children who have experienced domestic and family violence.
This ANROWS research project provides substantial additional analysis of data collected in the Australian Bureau of Statistics' (ABS) 2012 Personal Safety Survey (PSS).
