Report – Protection orders for domestic violence: A systematic review

13 June 2018

This study systematically reviews the use and impact of protection orders in response to domestic violence.

This report has been published by the Australian Institute of Criminology (AIC).

This systematic review of the impact of protection orders in response to domestic violence was undertaken using the EMMIE framework (Effectiveness, Mechanisms, Moderators, Implementation and Economy).

The review found that protection orders are associated with a small, but significant reduction in domestic violence. Protection orders were found to be more effective in certain circumstances, but less effective for offenders with a history of crime, violence and mental health issues.
