Abstract:

Violence against vulnerable groups, including women and children, people with disabilities and older people, has been increasingly acknowledged and made the focus of research and policy initiatives within, and across, European countries. This violence and intimidation is an everyday occurrence whether it takes place in family homes, residential facilities or public places and spaces.This book explores the common roots of such violence, develops a social model of vulnerability, review research and analyses a range of preventive strategies, clarifying the mandate which governments and mainstream agencies hold in relation to vulnerable citizens. The model of protection which emerges is not "a plea for kid gloves but for equal rights". -- Council of Europe.
