The European Institute for Gender Equality (EIGE) has developed 13 indicators on intimate partner violence (IPV) to guide the data collection efforts of the police and justice sectors. The indicators developed by EIGE help to assess the progress made at the national level to reduce IPV and domestic violence, and enhance the comparability of data in alignment with the minimum requirements of the EU’s victims’ rights directive and the Council of Europe’s Istanbul Convention.

This report provides guidance for national data providers that will participate in EIGE’s data collection exercise.
