Objectives and results

CAHRV focused on interpersonal violence, centred conceptually and strategically within a human rights discourse, with the aims of integrating relevant strands of research. By comparing national representative studies across Europe, CAHRV confirmed that violence against women remained a major problem affecting the lives of one quarter to one third of all women in European countries.
