Submission to the NSW Joint Select Committee on Coercive Control (2021)

Summary

Our Watch's submission to the NSW Joint Select Committee on Coercive Control focuses on how a primary prevention approach can be implemented to address the underlying drivers of coercive control, as a form of violence against women.

It offers an evidence-based framework and proven strategies to prevent coercive and controlling behaviours from developing in the first place, strategies that can be implemented whether or not new laws are introduced to criminalise this behaviour.
