National Centre of Excellence - Research Agenda

The National Centre of Excellence (NCE) was created as part of the National Plan to Reduce Violence against Women and their Children 2010-2022 (the National Plan).

The NCE asked for submissions from stakeholders for relevant reseach topics the NCE could investigate and report on. Their aim is to build a strong and lasting evidence base to develop future policy and practice to reduce violence against women and their children.

WLSA suggested three research topics:

  • Investigation of the current socio-psychological assessments in family law decisions making and their approach to family and domestic violence
  • Spousal and dependent visas and domestic violence
  • Child protection and early intervention
