Domestic Violence & Technology: New International Research & Resources for Practice

From the Battered Women’s Justice Project

Dr. Molly Dragiewicz & Dr. Bridget Harris will present recommendations for future research policy, & practice on technology & DV based on the 1st Australian study focused on survivors’ experiences of technology-facilitated coercive control. Digital technologies play an increasingly important role in everyday life. The ubiquity of these technologies, combined factors like with GPS tracking, cloud-based storage, and platform integration, present significant challenges to personal security and privacy, and particularly for domestic violence victims.

This webinar presents findings from the Australian Communications Consumer Advocacy Network funded study, "Domestic violence and communication technology: Victim experiences of intrusion, surveillance, and identity theft." Findings are based on interviews with 20 DV survivors in New South Wales and Queensland and online focus groups with key stakeholders in rural, regional, and remote areas

Following the above presentation, Rachel Gibson, Senior Technology Specialist for the Safety Net Project at the National Network to End Domestic Violence will discuss resources for practice from NNEDV’s extensive tech safety work and the application of the work to the US.

Presenters: Associate Professor Molly Dragiewicz, Griffith University, Australia
