Opportunities to respond to forced marriage within Australia's domestic and family violence framework: Issues paper

24 September 2019

This report looks at alternative policy and legislative approaches for addressing forced marriage in Australia.

This report has been published by Good Shepherd, Australia New Zealand.

The report explores opportunities to prevent and respond to forced marriage within domestic and family violence laws and policies, rather than through a criminal justice framework as currently applies.

It discusses the relationship between forced marriage and family violence, the drivers and impacts of forced marriage, policy and legislative responses, and the possible use of intervention orders.

Access the report via the Good Shepherd website.
