    Abstract

    This chapter brings together early findings from three PhD projects on domestic abuse, each taking a different approach. The first explores the issues of underreporting and the predictors of risk; the second focuses on the police response to domestic abuse, highlighting gaps in service provision to victims; and the final project looks at specialist courts and the work of independent domestic violence advisors. This chapter cannot do justice to all three of the projects here; however, it is worth noting that, together, they form a body of research with the potential to make a significant contribution to the field. Indeed, the motivation for each of the projects is to add to current efforts to improve responses to domestic abuse within the criminal justice system and beyond. This chapter will focus on the ways in which practitioners might predict, assess, and respond to risk in relation to domestic abuse.
