A Critical Frame Analysis of Victoria's Royal Commission into Family Violence

Supervisors

Summary

The Victorian Royal Commission into Family Violence was an important site for contestation over the framing of family violence as a policy problem. My thesis analysed problem framing in this royal commission from a feminist point of view and presented an intersectional model of gender, power and family violence.
