Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


This article presents a research that demonstrates the seriousness of the situation of violence against women in intimate relationships. The contribution of the research lies in the collection of figures from regional centers in Cali, Pasto and Cartagena, which refer to the main problems identified, and dynamics of violations, types of offenders, forms of violence and even periods when these phenomena are increased. It ends with some proposals concerning the strengthening of public policy, state and institutional response mechanisms, and designing of access to justice for women, given the serious situation described in intimate partner violence in the context of domestic violence.
