Abstract / Description

This article discusses the Law on the Prevention of Domestic Violence and Protection and Assistance for Victims of Domestic Violence, which was adopted in Georgia on 25 May 2006. This law explicitly recognises crimes committed within the family framework as fully-fledged crimes and provides a system of protective orders which provide the Georgian police with a much-needed tool to deal with domestic violence. Under the new law, the Government of Georgia is obliged to support and ensure the implementation of mechanisms to prevent violence within the family.
