From my research in the Victorian context (Castelino, 2011), policies that could be considered to perpetuate the discourse, nullifying gender through universalising communities are standard crime and violence prevention council documents.
In Victoria under the Bracks/Brumby governments this universalising discourse contributed to the building of local activities and leadership within municipal boundaries and forging partnerships and networks with local services on a local priority.
However, the embedding of this discourse, universalising communities, raises concerns as it nullifies gender, culture and anything that is not 'the norm'.
The category, nullifying gender through universalising communities, exposes these tensions and contradictions in the State family violence policy documents.
