Domestic violence and abuse is a comprehensive societal problem with a high relevance to social work practice. Knowledge about the problem is also formally required within Swedish social work programs.

Research in this area has been conducted at the Institution for social work since the 1990s. The focus of the studies has been individual’s exposure and perpetration, societal support, protection and treatment and how professionals and different authorities and agencies work with the issue. We are interested in the phenomena in regards to laws, conventions and regulations, and the importance of gender, age, ethnicity and class. Our institution has been particularly interested in researching honour-based violence and abuse.
