Self-Defence and Violence Against Women (VAW)
About the project
With start-up funding from the Dalhousie University VP Research and Innovation Seed Fund and Mitacs, we aim to develop a collaborative research program that better understands the impacts that expansions to self-defence and firearm laws across the United States have had on rates of intimate partner homicide and how self-defence cases in the context of intimate partner violence have been treated depending on variations in state laws.
