This report summarizes project PROTECT (Good Practice in Preventing Serious Violence, Attempted Homicides, Including Crimes in the Name of honour, and in Protecting High Risk Victims of Gender Based Violence) which aims at contributing to the prevention and reduction of the most serious forms of gender-based violence against girls, young women and their children, such as grievous bodily harm, homicide and attempted homicide, including so-called honour crimes and killings. This report is available in 8 languages (Bulgarian, Czech, English, French, German, Italian, Slovakian and Spanish).

“The project includes several strings of action: research on statistics on homicides/femicides and attempted homicides/femicides, including so-called killings in the name of honour, a summary of intimate partner violence and intimate partner femicide risk assessment studies (literature review), research on standards of protection and support available to high risk victims, three expert group meetings, and the PROTECT Online Resource Centre which is launched on the WAVE website.”
