Now that domestic violence has been subject to intense public attention and discussion for a couple of years:
- What has actually been achieved?
- What issues weren’t discussed and whose voices weren’t heard?
- What remains to be done?
- What strategies are available to ensure that we don’t go back to the bad old days of ‘violence as usual’?
The forum will be moderated by ABC Radio National’s Paul Barclay and recorded for later broadcast on his Big Ideas program.
