Dr. Rosay invited to NIJ’s Violence Against Women in Indian Country researchers’ meeting

Dr. André Rosay was invited to provide feedback from the research community regarding the program development work associated with Title IX, Section 904a, of the Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act of 2005. The U.S. Congress has mandated that NIJ conduct studies that will (1) examine violence against American Indian and Alaska Native women; (2) evaluate the effectiveness of federal, state, tribal, and local response to violence against women; and (3) propose recommendations to increase effectiveness. Dr. Rosay had previously participated in the Inaugural Section 904 Violence Against Women in Indian Country Task Force meeting at the U.S. Department of Justice on August 20, 2008.
