We are delighted to announce the following successful ARC DECRA and DISCOVERY successes.
Dr Angela Higginson has been awarded a Discovery Early Career Researcher Award (DECRA) entitled, Ethnically Motivated Youth Hate Crime in Australia
Total Funding Amount: $344,996 over three years
This project aims to provide the first assessment of youth hate crime in Australia, examine incidence rates over time, and explore how Australia’s experiences compare internationally. Hate crime can cause injury, psychological harm and social disengagement. For victims in early adolescence – a critical time of identity formation – the harms may be multiplied. The project will uncover the risk and protective factors for perpetration and victimisation, and for understanding the consequences for hate crime victims. This is expected to benefit the community by helping to inform social policy to improve the lives of Australia’s youth.
Out of 197 successful DECRA, only 2 were awarded in the 1602 Criminology FOR code
Professor Kerry Carrington is the successful recipient of a Discovery grant entitled, Preventing gendered violence: lessons from the global south
Total Funding Amount: $228,951 over three years
Preventing gendered violence: lessons from the global south. This project aims to study the establishment of police stations for women in Argentina as a key element to preventing gendered violence. This project aims to discover the extent to which the Argentinian interventions prevent the occurrence of gendered violence, and identify aspects that could inform the development of new approaches to preventing gendered violence in Australia. Anticipated outcomes include knowledge critical to developing and implementing new ways to prevent gendered violence, with long-term benefits for national health, wellbeing and productivity.
Out of 594 successful Discovery Projects, only four were awarded in the 1602 Criminology FOR code
