New Factsheet on the Implementation of ECHR Cases Concerning Domestic Violence

Last week, the Council of Europe’s Department for the Execution of Judgments of the European Court of Human Rights has published a new thematic factsheet on cases related to domestic violence. Here is a brief description:
