Preventive intervention and treatment programmes for violenting perpetrators of domestic violence are a duty of peace-aimed societies

Dagmar Freudenberg 

The Istanbul Convention has been an applicable federal law in Germany since 2018. Its implementation is a mandatory task for all levels, i.e. federal, state and local. Perpetrator work, regulated in Art. 16 IC, is at the same time an indispensable part of the sustainable fight against gender-based and domestic violence and at the same time part of its prevention, i.e. prevention in (subsequent) relationships of the identified, but also of the voluntarily surrendering perpetrator. But this approach is lacking funding as well as acknowledgement. It is only a matter of time before Germany will be held accountable for this. This lecture argues for quickly starting the implementation of offender work and assure its budgeting not only by municipalities but also in the state and federal budgets of the social, interior and justice ministries.
