Domestic violence is a serious issue in Britain but there is much uncertainty about the scale of the problem and how to address it through the law. How will the Government’s proposed Domestic Violence, Crime and Victims Bill improve the situation – if at all?
Tough Love examines the magnitude of domestic violence problems and what risks and benefits the proposed legal measures will represent.
Furthermore, the author investigates the dangers of introducing a rigid system to deal with a wide range of domestic offences, and suggests an alternative, more flexible approach.
