Access to justice for migrant and refugee women impacted by violence


31 MAY 2018
In 2015, the Judicial Council on Cultural Diversity (JCCD) held focus groups with women from a range of ethnic, cultural and religious backgrounds. This was the first time that the courts held consultations with migrant and refugee women at a national level. The JCCD also held state roundtables with stakeholders from legal services, settlement services and domestic violence services. The outcomes of these consultations were documented in a report: The Path to Justice: Migrant and Refugee Women’s Experience of the Courts.



This webinar discusses some key issues impacting on access to justice for migrant and refugee women, and provides some strategies to improve access to justice for migrant and refugee women impacted by violence, as outlined in the JCCD National Framework for Improving Accessibility to Australian Courts for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Women and Migrant and Refugee Women.
