It discusses the regulatory framework for data collection at EU level, and the indicators on intimate partner violence developed by EIGE to aid the collection of comprehensive data. It also tackles the role of the police and justice sectors in tackling intimate partner violence and the growing potential for the use of administrative data in evidence-based policies. Further, it focuses on the legal approaches to defining intimate partner violence and the characteristics of data collection in all Member States. Finally, in order to address the key challenges in collecting comparable data that have been identified throughout the study, it provides recommendations for the EU and Member States on how to overcome them.
