Abstract

Interagency collaboration in domestic and family violence (DFV) work is generally assumed to be good practice. This article questions this assumption, suggesting caution in adopting an uncritical pro-collaboration stance, arguing the need to trace the effects of working together on victims/survivors. Employing an innovative sociomaterial approach, this ethnographic study of interagency practice unravels its complexity, showing that not all ways of working together serve the interests of victims/survivors equally. Conceptualizing interagency DFV work as two distinctive, yet entangled, modes of collaboration, the findings have important implications for interagency DFV practice and policy.
