Family protection orders in the Pacific region: Report from a symposium held in December 2021


On 9 December 2021, the Pacific Community (SPC) and The Australian National University (ANU) co-convened a virtual ‘Symposium on family protection orders in the Pacific region’.

The symposium brought together expertise from across the region, including from the Cook Islands, Fiji, Samoa, Palau, Papua New Guinea (PNG), Solomon Islands, Timor Leste, Tonga, Tuvalu and Vanuatu.

The chapters of this publication are based on the presentations that were given at the event, and provide insightful accounts of how family protection orders and domestic and family violence (DFV) response systems are working across the Pacific.

The speakers contributed a rich array of expert perspectives and included lawyers, judicial officers, academics, police officers, government officials, and representatives from specialist DFV services, regional bodies and aid projects.
