Defining Domestic Violence in Protection Order Legislation: A pilot observational study in the ACT

MELISSA GIBB, Patricia EASTEAL

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

A 2013 cross-jurisdictional Australian analysis of the content and substance of protection order legislation found the ACT to have the weakest protection — in part since it fails to mention specific types of domestic violence within its definition of domestic violence for interim and final orders. This study investigates how true this is in practice and examine if the experiences of applicants that are not defined in the Domestic Violence and Protection Orders Act 2008 (‘the Act’) less visible and less protected than those that are?.
