Conference on domestic violence begins in Bratislava

The causes and forms of domestic violence and violent behaviour were among the topics of a two-day conference called 'Domestic Violence - New Practice and New Legislation in Europe' that opened under the auspices of President Ivan Gašparovič in Bratislava on October 15.

"Women aren't the only victims of domestic violence," said Ľudmila Čirtková of the White Circle civil association (Czech Republic). "Domestic violence can take the form of physical or psychological pressure, be it social, sexual or economic".
