After a thirteen month inquiry, the findings of the Victorian Royal Commission into Family Violence will be made public today. Victorian Premier, Daniel Andrews, has promised to accept all of the report's recommendations. They're expected to cover how courts, police, community services and politicians can better prevent family violence, improve early intervention, support victims and make perpetrators accountable.
Interview with Judge Eugene Hyman, who presided over cases heard in the the United States' first specialist domestic and family violence court, to discuss some of the potential recommendations that will be made in the report.
