Domestic Violence and violent criminal behaviour

A research-based exploration into the relationship between violence within family settings and violence in the (semi-)public domain (full text only available in Dutch)

Summary

This report describes a research-based exploration into the relationship between violence within family settings and violence in the (semi)-public domain. It is based on a study of the literature concerning the relationship between violence in both settings with a focus on the perpetrator and on conversations with experts, including a meeting of such experts. The central question addressed by this research is:

  1. To what extent is there a relationship between domestic violence, child abuse, and violent criminal behaviour in the public domain, and what is known about the underlying causality?
  2. To what extent can this knowledge contribute to interagency cooperation and interventions to achieve greater justice and safety?
