“The Research on Domestic Violence against Women in Turkey” conducted in 2014 is important for revealing the change in violence against women during the period since the 2008 research. Furthermore, concerning violence against women, the research will undertake an important mission for approaching social policies that will be established based on the institution of family, which is the foundation of society and which ensures social sustainability, in an inclusive and integrated manner. With the belief that violence against women is unacceptable, our Ministry continues its efforts with determination in a wide range and with the comprehensive collaboration of all parties. Within this context, our efforts concerning the combat with violence against women which includes the legislative amendments; the trainings and efforts to raise awareness; the enhancement of collaboration and cooperation between institutions; the empowerment of institutional mechanisms for the protection and support of victims of violence can be evaluated as our continuing priority topics.
