Good practice in Indigenous-led interventions to prevent violence against women
Mainstream interventions are often ineffective to address violence against women in Indigenous contexts.
Mainstream interventions often seek to solve the problem of violence against women by placing the onus on the woman to leave the abusive relationship and seek safety. However, such interventions are largely inappropriate in many Indigenous contexts. Alternatively, interventions occur through the judicial system in the form of incarceration, but recidivism rates highlight the ineffectiveness of a solely penal approach. The approach to resolving abuse by Indigenous-led interventions is often more holistic and directed at restoration.
This presentation draws upon research conducted as part of the 'Good practice in Indigenous-led interventions to prevent violence against women' project which aims to identify principles of good practice and develop context-specific indicators for each principle by undertaking case studies of programs working with Aboriginal people in the Northern Territory. This presentation draws upon grassroots knowledge, consultations, and partnerships with Aboriginal people and external stakeholders in the Northern Territory to explore the need and opportunity for community Indigenous-led approaches to mediation with a focus on domestic and family violence. The presentation will discuss mediation and family dispute resolution through an Indigenous lens and the need for mediators to be cognizant of the additional barriers particularly facing Indigenous women when engaging with the Family Law Court system.
While the presentation has a particular focus on the needs of indigenous women, those working with domestic violence in a range of circumstances will find many relevant touch points.
