Intimate partner homicide
Session Interactive schedule
What we know about intimate partner homicide in Australia is, overwhelmingly, what we know about intimate partner homicide offenders. Insight into victims is crucially lacking, and there is in addition an overreliance on sentencing remarks in understanding the circumstances surrounding these lethal incidents, due to the lack of quality and consistent data that can be extracted from the results of coronial inquests. In the opening session of the ANROWS National Research Conference, a panel of researchers from Australia and Canada will lay out the available data on intimate partner homicide, address the gaps in our knowledge of these homicides, discuss the need for institutional and professional accountability when it comes to preventing the intimate partner homicide deaths of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander victims, and situate Australia’s response to intimate partner homicides in a larger, global context.
