Bi-communal meeting on domestic violence in Nicosia
A bicommunal seminar on domestic violence prevention will take place in May in Nicosia.
A joint statement by the bicommunal technical committees on crime and criminal matters and on humanitarian matters says that in the context of the mandate given to the technical committees and sharing the concern about domestic violence as a social problem, the two committees are jointly organizing, with the support of the United Nations, a bi-communal seminar at Ledra Palace Hotel on 20th May 2015 with the emphasis on victims’ needs.
Speakers from both communities will map the nature and extent of the problem in Cyprus and suggest effective approaches in domestic violence prevention.
The seminar is being organized out of a concern for increasing trends in domestic violence and the need to address the needs of the victims.
