Registrations are now open for the AWAVA / Our Watch international conference on violence against women, which will be held in Adelaide from 19-22 September 2016.
Prevalent & Preventable will bring together a diverse group of people including service workers, community advocates, policy makers, researchers, government / non-government and other professionals from around Australia, New Zealand, the Asia Pacific, Europe and beyond to discuss ways to prevent violence against women and children.
Confirmed international keynote speakers: Professor Rashida Manjoo and Ms Marai Larasi


Workshops and conference sessions will fall within four thematic streams:

  • Preventing violence against Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women
  • Putting intersectionality into practice – ensuring that prevention efforts respond to and tackle the complex and multiple forms of discrimination and marginalisation that intersect in different ways to influence the perpetration of violence and its impact on women
  • Preventing violence against women in settings with limited services and infrastructure, including rural regional and remote communities in Australia and the Pacific
  • Children and young people as agents of change
