The Social & Global Studies Centre partners with leading industry organisations to deliver exceptional research and drive transformation in policy and practice.

International Policing and Civilian Protection in UN Peace Operations

Led by Dr Charles T. Hunt, this ARC Discovery Early Career Research Award project aims to evaluate the contribution of police to the implementation of protection of civilians mandates in United Nations peace operations.

The broad goal of the project is to identify ways of improving the protection of civilians into the future as police peacekeepers are deployed in large numbers to protect hundreds of thousands of civilians in increasingly complex conflict situations.

SGSC researchers have led and contributed to a number of ANROWS projects including 'Attitudes towards violence against women and gender equality among people in NSW', investigating the findings of the 2017 National Community Attitudes Survey (NCAS), and 'Preventing gender-based violence in inpatient mental health units'.

Findings from these research collaborations are playing a crucial role in shaping Australia's laws and policies to end violence against women and their children.
