. To study the extension of this violence into domestic violence, principally towards women and their children;
. To analyse the repercussions of these in the ethical values both of the aggressor and the victims;
. To help victims and relatives with legal advice and medical aid;
. To study civil legislation and to advocate in the countries to analyse the measures stipulated against violence and to make proposals for change.
To do this, the project set out :
. To make a sociological study of the profiles of violence among veterans and recruits, the imaginary masculinity that supports them and its contribution to the development of male violence;
. Through surveys, to study its later transformation in the civil area into violence against women and children. To quantify the scope of this violence;
. To put at the disposal of the public and victims, counselling and information services regarding their rights;
