International collection on domestic violence and abuse released this month

A new publication released this month brings together researchers from around the globe in The Routledge International Handbook on Domestic Violence and Abuse. Among contributors to the 50-chapter volume is Sociology Professor Myrna Dawson whose chapter ‘Domestic homicide review processes as a method of learning’ brings together current knowledge on challenges and achievements in these initiatives. Dawson co-authored the foundational paper upon which Canada’s first domestic violence death review committee was based, implemented in Ontario in 2002. Dawson served as a committee member for 15 years, stepping down in 2020, to focus more directly on researching these initiatives and their impacts.
