La Trobe Law School Academics Research ‘Family Violence in Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Communities’

In a recent article in the Australasian Dispute Resolution Journal, 2015, Volume 26, Part 1, Dr Alikki Vernon and Dr Lola Akin Ojelabi from the La Trobe Law School, along with Helen Cleak and Tom Fisher examine how family relationship centres respond to family violence in culturally and linguistically diverse communities. The authors conclude by offering “suggestions about how FRC services might better cater to the family violence needs of CALD communities by developing more extensive partnerships with community groups and by expanding the range of processes they offer beyond mediation”.
