Violence in close partner relationships is the most common form of violence experienced by women worldwide. It is a complex phenomenon often bearing long term health consequences for women.

We first list existing literature findings of studies investigating attitudes towards violence against women. Afterwards we propose 9 measures that would help increase understanding multi-stakeholder institutional responses to violence against women.
