"On 25 November 2017, the National Domestic Violence Order (DVO) Scheme was introduced to better protect Australians. All DVOs issued from 25 November, are automatically nationally recognised and enforceable. Victims no longer need to apply to register these DVOs in other Australian states and territories for them to be enforceable across the country. The Australian Criminal Intelligence Commission (ACIC) delivered an interim information sharing capability to support the National DVO Scheme. The capability includes a secure web portal which allows local courts across Australia to access DVO information held in the National Police Reference System. The ACIC is also working on a comprehensive National Order Reference System to automatically share...more

"Specific National Action Plan on violence against women and gender equality should be elaborated to address the situation of indigenous women. It is extremely worrying that the situation of some women, who are already confronted, in particular when they live in remote areas and in indigenous communities, with the dilemma of being homeless with no safe refuge, possibly with children, or staying with their abusers, might even worsen. Women's shelters and housing program should be adequately funded. Sufficient number of shelters is specially needed for Aboriginal communities that would be run by them and used as a hub for other services needed for recovery and empowerment"

"Taking into consideration the lack of direct applicability and the lack of full incorporation of CEDAW, the lack of a national legal framework on violence against women and complex federal system in which domestic violence laws and intervention orders fall under the state’s/territory’s authority while family law courts are federal, there is a need to improve cross-jurisdictional coherence. There is no single nationally agreed definition of family and domestic violence (different definitions coexist in different jurisdictions)"
