Monday, September 28, 2009 10:05 AM

The University of Ljubljana in Slovenia has published a report entitled Violence in the EU Examined on good practices and general recommendations for domestic violence initiatives in the Czech Republic, Cyprus, Estonia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Malta, Poland, Slovakia and Slovenia. The project was completed with support from the European Commission’s Daphne III Programme.

A research team comprised of organizations from the ten countries worked to analyze legislation and other data created between 1991 and 2006, focusing on the influence of community documents on national legislation. The project includes findings on sexual harassment, female genital mutilation, honor crimes, exploitation, trafficking, and other issues affecting women and children. A summary of the report’s general recommendations is also available in leaflet form.
