I had the privilege recently of attending an international conference on filicide hosted by Monash University. This conference, the first of its kind, attracted delegates from a diverse range of backgrounds and countries. The papers presented were of an exceptionally high quality, thought-provoking and challenging. We hope to publish some of these as a themed issue next year. One of the key themes to come out of the conference for me was the recognition that filicide (literally, the murder of one’s own child) is not a uniform phenomenon, but rather, encompasses and overlaps with a heterogeneity of circumstances, characteristics and motives that result in fatal harm to children.
