A report about inadequate enforcement of protection orders has been described as simplistic by the New Zealand Law Society.
Interesting to note that from this sample :
“Indeed, this research found that 87.5 per cent of the women in its case studies who applied for a protection order without notice to the other party were successful – a rate that is higher than the national average which, in 2006-2007, was 78.4 per cent.”
Its a nice way of the Law Society treating this “research” as what it really is Social Marketing for the reforms it advocates. Its a sad reflection that Waikato University Academics have to resort to undertaking social marketing programs on behalf of the Ministry of Womens Affairs.
