Gender based violence against women in Ireland – legislation and institutional aspects (Ireland)
The objective of this ad hoc-information request was to collect in Ireland reliable, precise and up-to-date information on the main relevant legislation that forms the legal basis to counter-act violence against women. In addition, some questions concern the implementation of this legislation, in particular the organisational framework and available statistical data.
Information on legislation presented the situation as of July 2013 and indicated concrete projects of legal reform, which are advanced in the sense that they have been adopted as proposals by the government or are pending in parliament.
