Overview: Since the end of the Indonesian occupation in 1999, and formal independence in 2002, domestic violence has been frequently identified as an acute social problem in Timor-Leste. This seminar brings together practitioners from Timor-Leste with academics working on this issue to discuss how domestic violence is both understood in the country, and how different organisations are seeking to provide support to victims.

Making presentations will be Luisa Marcal, who is a founding member of PRADET (Psychosocial Recovery and Development in East Timor) and Coordinator of the Fatin Hakmatek program (Safe House), and Teresa Pereira, who is the founding Director of Centru Feto Haburas Dezenvolvimento (CFHD - Centre for Women’s Growth and Development) in Baucau. Both Teresa and Luisa will be discussing how their organisations provide support to victims of domestic violence and the kinds of challenges faced. Joining them will be Damian Grenfell, who works at RMIT University and is part of a research team working on the economic dimensions of domestic violence in Timor-Leste.

This event has been organised by the Globalism Research Centre<http://www.rmit.edu.au/globalism>
