Abstract

The paper is based on research into the use of Domestic Violence Protection Orders by Indigenous women in Queensland, and their effectiveness as a response to family violence particularly in rural and remote areas. The paper draws on a number of case studies which highlight the problems in accessing legal support and protection. The paper also noted the problems associated with developing an evidence base because of the limitations of relevant government information on the use of domestic and family violence orders.
