Abstract

This chapter explores the intersections of temporary migration and family violence, drawing on a large project conducted in Australia. It brings to bear, for the first time, the details of the ways in which temporary migration produces and sustains risk in the context of family violence, and the importance of addressing aspects of the migration and family violence support systems to improve outcomes for those experiencing family violence.
