An Integral Study of Intimate Partner's Violence Against Women: Individual and Relational Factors that Increase the Risks of Perpetrating and Experiencing IPV

This study aims at estimating the risks of perpetrating and experiencing Intimate Partner's Violence (IPV). The project takes a comprehensive approach to the phenomenon by considering the characteristics  of both the male aggressors and the female victims, andof  their relations of (inter-)dependency and conflict.

The study hopes to provide professionals with frequent contact with aggressors and victims  ̶  police, judges, health personnel, etc.  ̶  with efficient instruments to detect and treat this problem.

Besides applying a comprehensive approach which can rarely be found in previous research on IPV, the project proposes to use some innovative methodologies for its study, such as: the use of natural experiments to tackle self-selection effects and correctly estimate the impact of sentence severity on offenders' probability of reoffending; the generation of typologies of victims distinguished by the probability of experiencing repeated victimizations with the use of multiple correspondence analysis; the development of ad-hoc software for mobile telephones with which to easily report suspected cases of IPV; or the cross-national investigation of the relational factors that best predict conflict and violence among intimate partners.
