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 (VAW) in Australia and the Indo-Pacific region. CEVAW aims to transform our understanding of the problem of VAW by examining the socio-structural drivers that cause and compound it, and pioneering new, evidence-based approaches to inform trajectory-altering practice and policy. CEVAW will generate fundamental knowledge on the causes and contexts in which violence 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 VAW across the legal, security, economic, health, and political systems of Australia and the region. Headquartered at Monash University, CEVAW comprises 13 chief investigators at six Australian institutions and 45 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.
