domestic violence, institutions, prevention, NGO


Our article proposes to review a number of socio – juridical perspectives on domestic violence and to point out the main institutions and services developed in Romania that have as target the management of domestic violence. At the same time, the research done by us has emphasized that although from a juridical organization and institutional point of view things are favourable, and numbers do not indicate a decrease of the phenomenon. For this reason, at the end of the article, we stress the necessity of a continuous education and informing campaign which could involve present institutions and organizations.
