CEP: Domestic Violence: an ongoing phenomenon all around Europe

Domestic Violence: an ongoing phenomenon all around Europe

In 2018 CEP and EuroPris established a joint expert-group on Domestic Violence (DV), in order to improve management and rehabilitation of offenders with a DV background. 

During the last expert meeting earlier this year it was decided to publish a special newsletter about Domestic Violence. Emerging evidence on the impact of COVID-19 lockdown measures has led to a rise in Domestic Violence all over Europe.

Attention needs to be paid to the differences in cultural and religious backgrounds and to increase the knowledge about this matter in order to tackle domestic violence in different contexts. Domestic violence is an issue that goes through both prison and probation. It is therefore a natural choice that CEP and EuroPris work together in a joint expert group. Both organisations have unique networks that can be used for raising awareness, exchange experiences and share knowledge.
