This project examined the role of different elements of procedural justice in domestic and family violence (DFV)-related court proceedings for victim engagement in civil and criminal justice proceedings and perpetrator compliance with civil and criminal justice responses and engagement in related interventions. The study aimed to capture perceptions and experiences of procedural justice by victims, perpetrators and ‘court-related’ staff. Court-related staff included magistrates, police prosecutors, and operational police officers serving respondents with a DVO, court support workers and duty lawyers.
