Dr. Jane Wangmann presented her research yesterday on the policing of domestic violence in New South Wales, Australia, in a seminar hosted by the Centre for the Study of Social and Legal Responses to Violence (CSSLRV). A Visiting Scholar at the CSSLRV, Dr. Wangmann is a senior lecturer in the Faculty of Law, University of Technology Sydney, Australia. Her research is concerned with legal responses to domestic violence; in particular, she is concerned with how the law defines, understands and conceives of this harm. The research she discussed draws from a mix-method, multi-stage study of policing of domestic violence, tracking cases over a six-year period (2006-2011) to identify patterns of perpetration and victimization across time. Her paper focused, in particular, on gender differences that were identified. In her research, Dr. Wangmann draws on her extensive work in the field of domestic violence and the law for over 20 years ‐ previously as a solicitor in a community legal centre, as a senior policy officer in the NSW Attorney General’s Department, as a law reform officer with the Australian Law Reform Commission and in research. Her recent research has explored the use of typologies of intimate partner violence in family law, and gender differences in men and women’s use of violence in civil and criminal legal processes. She is currently a member of the New South Wales Domestic Violence Death Review Team.
