Professor Molly Dragiewicz, Director Crime and Justice Research Centre at QUT, writes:
‘Queensland has had only four projects that even mention domestic violence funded since 2001. Only one of these, a current Future Fellowship, is primarily focused on domestic violence. In contrast, 905 ARC grants have been made since 2001 on mining. Ultimately, effectively responding to and preventing violence will require multiple changes and interventions across education, research, law, policy, and practice.
