Domestic Violence against Man: Where are We Around the World?

Authors : Malveiro and Angela de Branco

Abstract: This study aims to contribute to the sociological knowledge of the phenomenon of domestic violence in the world and to see if we still see men as abusers and not as victims. This is the continuity of a project still underway in the scope of the doctoral course in sociology by the University of Evora with incidence on domestic violence in Portugal. This first approach to review will focus on the theorizing and definition of the concept, its evolution as gender issues, the main types of violence associated with the particularity of being a male victim in the conjugal sphere and on the other hand, if there is already public investment or political to respond to this social issue in other countries whether there is a public or political investment to respond to this social issue in other countries and the same is held by the academic world of each of the countries in focus.
