Homicide Between Adult Sexual Intimates: A Research Agenda

Homicide Between Adult Sexual Intimates: A Research Agenda Although overseas research on homicide between intimates has been substantial, application of the findings to Australia may be problematic for two reasons. First, critical evaluation of their methods indicates possible difficulties in generalisability due to definitional, semantic, and theoretical variation. Secondly, the findings of the few studies in Australia do not necessarily conform to the patterns and experiences of this homicide type overseas. Australian analysis also provides insight into concerns which may be unique to this country and merit further investigation at a national level. These include a disproportionately high rate among Aboriginals, a similar high rate among immigrant groups, and frequency of victim precipitation in killings of husbands. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Australian & New Zealand Journal of Criminology SAGE

Abstract

Although overseas research on homicide between intimates has been substantial, application of the findings to Australia may be problematic for two reasons. First, critical evaluation of their methods indicates possible difficulties in generalisability due to definitional, semantic, and theoretical variation. Secondly, the findings of the few studies in Australia do not necessarily conform to the patterns and experiences of this homicide type overseas. Australian analysis also provides insight into concerns which may be unique to this country and merit further investigation at a national level. These include a disproportionately high rate among Aboriginals, a similar high rate among immigrant groups, and frequency of victim precipitation in killings of husbands.
