Rape law reform in both Australian and international contexts has been vigorously pursued, yet hotly contested. Many scholars, legal professionals and activists alike argue that the impact of rape law reform has been negligible, with little change to reporting, prosecution and conviction rates, and little improvement to procedural justice for both victims and accused persons.

This one-day colloquium interrogates the ongoing project of rape law reform by drawing on critical, feminist and comparative analyses of the lessons learned, current challenges and future prospects for legal and non-legal responses to rape. The program features international and national expert speakers who will promote creative reflections about reform approaches and outcomes in an international context; and provide a conceptual space in which to rethink the ongoing project of rape law reform.
