Tough Love A Critique of the Domestic Violence, Crime, & Victims Bill 2003
Tough Love A Critique of the Domestic Violence, Crime, & Victims Bill 2003. This pamphlet will examine the magnitude of domestic violence problems and what risks and benefits the proposed legal measures will present. Significant issues are raised, not just for the victims of domestic violence, but also for the entire criminal justice system. Will the new bill pose a serious threat to civil liberties? Will the intended measures to support victims be truly effective or are they mere window dressing? The author considers the dangers of introducing a rigid system to deal with the wide range of domestic violence offences, and suggests an alternative, more flexible approach.
