Out of the shadows: The rise of domestic violence in Australia

Research output: Contribution to journalOnline ResourceResearch

Abstract

Once a hidden crime, domestic violence has in recent years emerged as a mainstream criminal justice issue in Australia. Cases such as Queensland man Gerard Baden-Clay’s murder of his wife Allison and the death of Luke Batty in Victoria at the hands of his father have attracted unprecedented media attention and put the spectre of domestic violence firmly back in the spotlight.

But how prevalent is domestic violence and what is the cost to Australian society?
