Applying the Institutional Analysis Model to Sexual Assault
With Olga Trujillo and Lucy Pope, Praxis Technical
Institutional Analysis (IA) tools developed by Praxis are
designed for practitioners and advocates to work side by side to analyze
policies, case files, and case processing steps to identify concrete points of
change that can improve outcomes for survivors of violence against
women. The IA method helps a team analyze how the day-to-day work
practices of practitioners are organized to either centralize or marginalize attention
to the needs of survivors and accountability of offenders. The method has been
applied to a range of institutional processes such as domestic violence
criminal cases, child protection, supervised visitation and exchange centers,
family court, and custody determinations. A handful of communities have
recently used the IA Model to examine how their criminal legal system processes
sexual assault cases. IA teams have made important adaptations to account
for SANE programs, campus responses, strategies for victim input, and
accountability of perpetrators. This webinar will provide an overview of
the Institutional Analysis Model with a focus on key adaptations a team
considers when this method is applied to sexual assault criminal cases.
Incorporate this process into your next OVW grant
application - solicitations will be open soon!
