MAEVe has strong links throughout The University of Melbourne, and with a broad range of national and international organisations working to prevent and respond to violence against women. In addressing this complex problem, MAEVe is supported by global, nation and state policy directions. The World Health Organisation (WHO) and the Council of Australian Governments (COAG) have prioritised preventing and responding to the extensive social and health damage caused by violence against women.
Our internal collaborators span across the University, from criminology and journalism to social work and law. Our external partners include Domestic Violence Resource Centre Victoria, the Victorian Health Promotion Organisation, Australia’s National Research Organisation for Women’s Safety, the WHO, among many others. MAEVe works closely with these organisations with the aim to reduce harm to women and children in our community.
