A scientific team prepared a study entitled "Domestic Violence: A Civil Study at the Level of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia," commissioned by the Ministry of Social Affairs. The study aimed at reviewing the most prominent characteristics of domestic violence through the analysis of views expressed by practitioners.
