Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2009, $343,565)

Violence against women (VAW) has been a high priority of criminal justice (CJ)research and was highlighted in an NIJ-sponsored conference, "Next Millennium Conference: Ending Domestic Violence." As a result, VAW researcher-practitioner partnerships have produced volumes of knowledge that have been undocumented that can be used for future partnering efforts. This application proposes to develop a series of multi-media including published documents and electronic media focused on building and enhancing CJ researcher-practitioner partnerships, which will inform NIJ's development of a toolkit on partnering. Literature reviews and case studies of, interviews and focus groups with, and surveys of researchers and practitioners will be conducted to inform the development of multi-media on three topics central to successful CJ partnerships: Building and Enhancing (1) Government Systems to Foster VAW Researcher-Practitioner Partnerships, (2) Researcher-Practitioner Partnerships for VAW Offenders, and (3)Researcher-Practitioner Partnerships for VAW Victims. ca/ncf
