Police and justice sector data on intimate partner violence against women in the European Union

28.10.2019 / Created by (EMWF)

Quality administrative data that are available and comparable are key to understanding the scale of intimate partner violence in the EU and monitoring progress in tackling it. Administrative data measure the response of governmental agencies (such as the police and justice sectors) to intimate partner violence, and their capacity to protect victims, prevent further violence and prosecute the perpetrators. 

This study focuses on reported incidents of intimate partner violence against women, recorded and processed in the police and justice sectors. The findings of the study are presented in two reports. The current technical report provides an in-depth analysis of the availability and comparability of data at Member State level, based on several phases of information collection using a mixed-method approach.
