During 2019, IMPRODOVA partners conducted data collection "in the field" interviewing experts, frontline responders and practitioners being active in the field of domestic violence. Almost 300 interviews have been conducted and analyzed, giving a vivid picture on how cases of domestic abuse are usually processed and what best practices in the eight IMPRODOVA countries are promising approaches for a better support of victims and their families.
