Data on violence
Improving administrative data collection on intimate partner violence (2016)
Client: European Institute for Gender Equality
The study will contribute to EIGE's long-term objective on combating and eliminating violence against women in the EU Member States and will support the European institutions and Member States in ascertaining the level of prevalence of violence against women and in formulating policies to eradicate it.
The specific objective of the study is to improve data collection on violence against women and to support the implementation of EU and Member States' commitments to combat violence against women. Building on EIGE's previous EIGE studies and work in this area, the study will develop tailor made recommendations on actions to be taken by Member States to improve administrative data collection on intimate partner violence and in furthering the harmonisation of data across the EU-28.
To achieve the objective, the study will
- Prepare country factsheets for 28 EU Member States
- Prepare an analytical paper on key challenges at EU level
- Prepare an analytical paper on the key challenges and main gaps for reporting according to international commitments (Istanbul Convention and Victim’s Rights Directive)
- Develop tailor made recommendations for the police and judiciary of each Member State, notably through the organisation of national and joint consultation meetings.
- Develop recommendations for Eurostat
- Prepare a synthesis report of the situation in the EU
The study will run for a period of one year, starting in October 2016.
