The Melbourne Research Alliance to End Violence Against Women and their Children (MAEVe) was established in 2015 to draw together research and evaluation capacity across the University, in partnership with community, industry and government agencies, to respond to this pressing challenge.

MAEVe strives to make a difference to the lives of women, families and communities by addressing and preventing violence against women through interdisciplinary and intra-institutional collaboration.

MAEVe's lunchtime seminar series is held fortnightly. The next event in the series will focus on Affect, Embodiment and Intergenerational Transmission of Trauma with speaker Ana Dragoljovic.

Topics, speakers and seminar locations are subject to change. For updates, as well as further information about upcoming events, visit the MAEVe website.
