AbstractThe Alaska Department of Public Safety in partnership with the University of Alaska Anchorage Justice Center has conducted and published numerous research projects and articles specific to domestic violence, sexual assault, child sexual abuse and stalking. These evidence based research projects have been used to develop Alaska’s new multidisciplinary and multifaceted initiative to combat domestic violence and sex crimes in Alaska. Certain portions of this new initiative target enforcement and prosecution of offenders who commit these crimes and are funded with both state general funds as well as Recovery Act Funds. The groundbreaking research conducted with UAA was supported with funds from the Council on Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault and federal grant funds from the National Institute of Justice.

Older Women Face Psychological and Physical AbuseRosay, André B. (Justice Center, University of Alaska Anchorage, 2017-07-14)This article examines psychological and physical abuse against women in Alaska who are aged 60 or older and compares these rates to national rates. Psychological abuse includes expressive aggression by intimate partners and coercive control by intimate partners. Physical abuse includes physical violence by intimate partners. It also includes sexual violence, by both intimate partners and non-intimate partners. Estimates are provided for both psychological and physical abuse. Alaska estimates come from the 2010–2015 Alaska Victimization Survey (AVS) and national estimates from the 2010 National Intimate Partner and Sexual Violence Survey (NISVS). Results show that one in nine Alaskan women aged 60 or older (11.5%) experienced psychological or physical abuse in the past year. These rates are all significantly higher than national rates.
Violence against American Indian and Alaska Native Women and MenRosay, André B. (U.S. Department of Justice, National Institute of Justice, 2016-09)More than four in five American Indian and Alaska Native women and men have experienced violence in their lifetime, and more than one in three experienced violence in the past year, according to a new report from an NIJ-funded study. The study, part of NIJ's research program on violence against American Indian and Alaska Native women, looked at how prevalent psychological aggression and physical violence by intimate partners, stalking, and sexual violence were among American Indian and Alaska Native women and men. It also examined the perpetrators' race and the impact of the violence.
