Attitudes towards violence against women in the EU

20.01.2016 / Created by (EMWF)

This report was accomplished through the review of surveys published in the last 5 years in EU countries that included questions addressing attitudes towards violence against women, in addition to quantitative and qualitative studies on attitudes towards violence against women, published in academic journals. The report allowed the identification of four key areas related to public attitudes towards violence against women: (1) Public perceptions of violence against women as a social problem; (2) Public understanding of the causes of violence against women; (3) Victim-blaming attitudes; and (4) Public knowledge, attitudes towards intervention, and responses in cases of violence against women.
