Comité de coopération entre les professionnels dans le domaine de la lutte contre la violence." Committee gathering all professionals involved in the fight against domestic violence.
It gathers all institutional and NGO actors and is a key instrument in reporting/evaluating positive and pitfalls of the law and actions in this field. It centralised and analysed all statitics regarding domestic violence and is responsible for supervising the correct implementation of the law and dealing with any practical issue in that field. It can propose to the Government any initiative necessary to improve the implementation of the law. Every year, it submits to the Government a written report containing all relevant statistics and their analysis as well as proposal or analysis on key issues. Reports are available on http://www.mega.lu/publications/1_brochures/index.html
Aims and objectives
The law on eviction of perpetrators of domestic violence (8 September 2003) stipulates that a committee gathering all professional actors in the field of domestic violence should be set up to follow the implementation of the law. Such a committee was created by a Grand Ducal Regulation of 24 November 2003. It has an important role as a discussion forum between professional actors implementing the law regarding eviction of authors of domestic violence and ensure a better coordination and cooperation in that field.
Results and impact
No evaluation of the Committee is available. However, the implementation of the law of 8 September was evaluated. Following it, a modified law is currently under discussion in the Parliament. This will have an impact on the composition of the committee as it will probably be open to recognised support services to authors of violence.
