The project was funded by The European Commission's Daphne II Programme to combat violence against children, young people and women and the German Federal Ministry for Family Affairs, Senior Citizens, Women and Youth.
Eight project partners from seven European countries ran the project from April 2006 to June 2008.
The main goal of the project was to increase the safety of victims of domestic violence by fostering a European exchange about good practice in the work with male perpetrators of domestic violence.
The main target group of the gathered information is practitioners working with male perpetrators of domestic violence and professionals who are confronted with domestic violence in their daily work such as police staff, prosecution authorities, women's shelters workers, help lines, counselling centres and other.
Beyond that, the results should support decision makers and policy to foster domestic violence intervention strategies and to improve the conditions for working with perpetrators and perpetrator programmes.
