This session will explore the idea of “social entrapment” as a framework for understanding intimate partner violence, and the work that is being done to embed this conceptual understanding of intimate partner violence within the law. The panel is comprised of activist academics who will each present a study of a legal case they were involved with. The cases each involve a homicide within an intimate partner relationship that was characterised by coercive control. The role of structural inequities (such as Indigeneity and disability) will be drawn out, and the limits of family violence safety systems explored.
