The project INASC aims to improve existing understanding of victims’ experiences of the progress of DV cases in criminal proceedings and how these experiences relate to individual assessment mechanisms and outcomes.

On this homepage you will find some results of our work on this issue. At this stage of the project you will find literature reports on the situation in the countries involved. In 2015 research reports on the basis of case file analysis and interviews will follow – one report per country and an international report summarizing the results of all countries. Further project documents including practical tools, for practitioners will be added in the course of 2015 and the beginning of 2016. The material for practitioners is designed mainly for police officers and the judiciary, but may be useful also for other professions and services. The project documents and tools will be developed by partners from Austria, Germany, Ireland, the Netherlands and Portugal thus providing a compendium of material which may be adopted, adapted and used throughout the European Union and (potentially) beyond. The project is co-ordinated by CESIS (Portugal) and supported by the Criminal Justice Programme of the European Union.

All of our material is available in English; some project documents are available in the language of the country in which they were developed. This homepage is also available in these languages (see flags above). The website is organised by topic and project documents and tools, not by country.

This website has been developed by members of the project team in cooperation with Zoom. It is being hosted and maintained by Zoom.

Thank you very much for your interest!
