Shelters in Norway and Slovakia

This is a bilateral research project between NKVTS and the Coordinaring Methodological Centre (CMC) in Slovakia. It is part of a cooperation programme funded by the EEA/Norway Grants. The research project studies domestic violence shelters as an arena for support, interventions and consciousness raising from the perspective of both women and children exposed to violence and staff and volunteers working at the shelters. The societal role of shelters in the two countries will also be examined in the project.
