Description

This research paper aims to explore responses by the police to victims of domestic violence, specifically, in their capacity to refer women to shelter services. It does so in relation to Enhancing State Responsiveness to GBV: Paying the True Costs, a project of the Heinrich Böll Foundation (HBF) and the National Shelter Movement of South Africa (NSM). The project, which is funded by the European Union, promotes support for state accountability for adequate and effective provision of domestic violence survivor support programmes, especially those associated with the provision of shelters for abused women.
