Overview




 
The Commission on Domestic Violence was set up under Article 3 of the Domestic Violence Act (Chapter 481) on March 1, 2006. The main role of the Commission is that of advising the Minister responsible for social policy on all aspects of Domestic Violence.
 
These aspects include:
(i) combating against domestic violence, especially by raising awareness on the problem.
 
(ii) suggesting areas for research, recommending policy amendments, and identifying training for professional groups.
 
The Commission aims at increasing awareness and understanding about domestic violence by creating awareness raising campaigns based on specific themes.   Such themes are generally aimed towards providing educational messages and information on how one can get help and at prevention.
In its work, the Commission on Domestic Violence consults and liaises with various stakeholders.  Through such consultations the Commission provides recommendations for policy, services and legislation based on evidence-based research.
The Commission has issued a public consultation titled “Reporting Domestic Violence - Guidelines for Journalists and Media Content Producers”.  More details can be found here​.
