Join us for this panel on The Problematic Abolition of Defensive Homicide: The Missing Voices in the Debate
In November 2014, the Victorian offence of defensive homicide was abolished following a widely held perception that it was being ‘abused’ by violent men. This panel event, facilitated by Professor Bronwyn Naylor, RMIT University, will provide an opportunity to reflect on some of the missing voices during the controversial debates surrounding defensive homicide’s operation.
