About Us

The aim of the DRVAW ​Hub is to foster a research network that will distinguish and showcase Deakin’s combined research expertise in the area of violence against women (gendered violence; intimate partner violence; family violence). Through the research network, the DRVAW Hub will provide regular opportunities for researchers to meet and identify areas of existing expertise and build capacity for the development of collaborations with researchers, academics and HDR students from other Faculties and Universities, and community and government stakeholders, and collaborate on projects to address issues related to the gendered aspects of violence against women.
