Victim experiences

Most of the victim experiences were prepared with assistance from an Australian Research Council Future Fellowship [Heather Douglas: FT 140100796]. We thank those who participated for their willingness to share their stories. The remaining victim experiences are based on case studies provided by Caxton Legal Service and Legal Aid (NSW).
