The Eastern Metropolitan Social Issues Council (EMSIC) has commissioned a collaborative research project from Deakin University on two key priority issues: 

  • violence in vulnerable communities (with a key focus on family violence)
  • social inclusion and community connectedness.

The work has mapped current activities, analysed local, national and international trends, reviewed the evidence base and provided a framework for regional action to address these issues. 

The project has also generated measurement and monitoring indicators around family violence.
