Engaging with political processes addressing FV | Monash
September 7 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am
Public inquiries are increasingly employed for addressing some of Australia’s most pervasive social problems, including family violence, but little is known about how they operate or how to engage with them to best bring about social change. This seminar considers these issues and how inquiries impact work to address family violence. It begins this conversation by exploring the perspectives of women engaging with the Victorian Royal Commission into Family Violence and in the early implementation of the subsequent reform process, before offering new ways of thinking about inquiries through ideas of relationality and non-linear conceptions of power and time. To build a deeper understanding of these processes together, reflections on inquiry processes, their exclusions and inclusions, and possibilities for social change are warmly welcomed.
