    About Us

    The Australia Research Council Centre of Excellence for the Elimination of Violence against Women (CEVAW) is the world's first Centre to tackle the full range of forms of violence against women in Australia and the Indo- Pacific region. CEVAW aims to transform our understanding of the problem by examining the structural drivers that cause and compound violence against women (VAW), and pioneering new, evidence-based approaches to inform trajectory-altering practice and policy. CEVAW will generate fundamental knowledge on the causes of violence, the contexts in which it occurs, and the most effective and efficient responses. This interdisciplinary research will be data-driven, Indigenous-centred and co-designed with partners. CEVAW brings together over 40 world-leading experts to develop scalable approaches to eliminate violence against women across the legal, security, economic, health, and political systems of Australia and the region. Headquartered at Monash University, CEVAW comprises 14 chief investigators at seven Australian institutions, 15 partner investigators worldwide, 33 partner organisations and over 100 HDR students and postdoctoral fellows. By building strategic and strong partnerships with Australian and international research institutions and partner organisations, CEVAW will translate research into innovative tools and strengthened capacity to drive the elimination of violence against women. With almost $50M investment from the ARC and contributing organisations, CEVAW is poised to make a significant, global impact.

    At CEVAW, we are committed to fostering an inclusive, safe and supportive environment free from discrimination and marginalisation that upholds the principles of respect, equity, and inclusion.
