The project aims at contributing to the prevention of domestic and dating violence against lesbians and transwomen in selected countries in the EU. It will investigate causes of domestic and dating violence; characteristics of abusers and modality of violence. In more detail it is the first attempt to gather data on domestic and dating violence against lesbians and transwomen by collecting both legal texts and regulations, as well as national legislation, and good practices to prevent or resolve the occurrence of intimate violence.
