O Projeto


The project aims to produce knowledge about three essential dimensions of preventing and combating domestic violence and gender-based violence that have been diagnosed as lacking reflection and debate in the Portuguese legal environment: the immediate response to violence and administrative or coercive measures applied to offenders; the impact of measures applied to offenders; and the articulation between the criminal process and the child custody cases, when children are involved. It is foreseen the publication of a study on the effectiveness of coercive measures and sentences in the context of domestic and gender violence and the production of recommendations based on the study and comparative analysis of other EU legal systems on the effectiveness of such measures in the context of domestic and gender violence.
