China’s Anti-Domestic Violence Law came into effect in 2016 as a significant milestone in policing domestic violence, though many have criticized the mixed signals sent by the legislation: does policy mandate proactive intervention and punitive measures against offenders, or does it continue to characterize domestic violence as mere “familial dispute” and therefore only informal mediation is required? Join criminal justice scholar Dr. Kai Lin from California State University, Sacramento, who will present his findings from an empirical study of survey data, and discuss the effects of training about the recent legislation on frontline responders’ attitude towards domestic violence interventions.
