Digital technology is increasingly used in domestic and family violence. Research from the University of Queensland shows that almost any technology, including social media and GPS-trackers, can be used for abusive purposes.

We spoke with Professor Heather Douglas from the TC Beirne School of Law at the University of Queensland and Dr Jane Wangmann from the Faculty of Law at the University of Technology Sydney.
