Kosovo BALKANS: When Kosovo women avoid reporting domestic abuse

3 Jan 2012 domestic violence

‘Women News Network’ reports that Police in Kosovo register over 1,000 officially-reported episodes of domestic violence every year and four out of five victims are women. However, official data is just the tip of the iceberg – not many women dare denounce their aggressors. In over half the cases, violence against women was also associated with violence against children. Together with human trafficking, domestic violence is one of the most serious dangers for women and children in the country. Over 2,000 women and children have been hosted in shelters so far.
