In this video interview clip, John Hamel, Editor-in-Chief of the journal Partner Abuse, and Partner Abuse State of Knowledge (PASK) Director, offers a brief history of the domestic violence field and related policy, and explores how the field has been politicized and stymied.
About PASK: The Partner Abuse State of Knowledge project, or PASK, is the most comprehensive review of the scholarly domestic violence research literature ever conducted. The unprecedented study spanned three years, was conducted by 42 scholars at 20 universities and research centers, and includes information on 17 areas of domestic violence research. It affirms, among other things, that women perpetrate physical and emotional abuse at comparable rates to men. PASK findings were printed in special issues of Partner Abuse.
