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. These practitioners came from four different fields: specialists in guidance units, workers in women's prisons, social workers in domestic worker welfare protection units, and practitioners in governmental hospitals who dealt with cases of domestic violence.
