Digital media and domestic violence: New Australian research | Concho Room | Monday, 25. November 2019

Associate Professor Molly Dragiewicz will present findings from the first Australian study focused on survivors’ experiences of technology-facilitated coercive control. Digital technologies play an increasingly important role in everyday life. The prevalence of these technologies, combined factors like with platform convergence, GPS tracking, cloud-based storage, and ubiquitous social media, present significant challenges to personal security and privacy, particularly for domestic violence victims. Dragiewicz will present findings from the Australian Communications Consumer Advocacy Network funded study Domestic violence and communication technology: Victim experiences of intrusion, surveillance, and identity theft https://accan.org.au/grants/current-grants/1429-domestic-violence-and-communication-technology-victim-experiences-of-intrusion-surveillance-and-identity-theft  Findings are based on interviews with twenty domestic violence survivors in New South Wales and Queensland and online focus groups with key stakeholders in rural, regional, and remote areas.
