Title: Abuse of women – when society takes its responsibility

Author: Katarina Ehn

Tutor: Lena Agevall

The aim of this study is, through a qualitative case study, to identify important factors for the initiation and development of the comprehensive programme to combat the problem of domestic abuse of women in Malmö.

To achieve the aims of this study, three questions were asked: Where does the recognition and acknowledgement of domestic violence occur as a societal responsibility? How is work with abused women influenced by the cooperation between the actors involved? What is the ideological basis for the work with abused women?

The method used was to interview six people from various departments in the organisation. Official documents relating to the subject were also studied.

The following conclusions were drawn: The recognition of abuse of women is a complex process which takes place both vertically and horizontally within the organisation. These parallel processes are both important and serve different purposes.

Vertical recognition is at a political level and leads to acknowledgement followed by re-allocation of financial means. Horizontal recognition is at an official level where it is firmly established in the everyday work.

Co-operation between the parties involved leads to a broader understanding of the problem. Thus, profound knowledge of the issue is achieved; security of legal rights is strengthened and suitable strategies developed to resolve the problems.

Work with abused women is based on the principle of gender equality and human rights.
