WA Family Law Pathways Network invites you to their webinar

Understanding the role of law and culture in Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander communities

About this webinar

Family violence within Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities attracts considerable attention in policy, research and practice.

Many Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples have advocated for community-led approaches to family violence that are culturally safe, involve Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander justice models and recognise Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander Law and Culture.

Professors Harry Blagg and Vickie Hovane will be presenting their research, key findings and recommendations on the recently published ANROWS report "Understanding the role of law and culture in Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander communities in responding to and preventing family violence"
