Background:

Domestic violence, gender-based violence and physical punishment of children represent a widespread phenomenon in Kosovo. Findings from latest studies indicate that patriarchal family structure, traditional social norms and cultural attitudes reinforcing violent practices are still prevalent in Kosovo. Despite many efforts of international and national organizations on addressing issues related to domestic violence in Kosovo and the fact that Kosovo* has an appropriate legal and institutional framework in place to address domestic violence and gender-based violence, a lot remains to be done in terms of prevention and addressing violent practices within the family.

Violence experienced or witnessed by a child at an early age, when the brain and body are at a crucial stage of development, can cause lifelong damage. It affects children’s physical and mental health, compromises their ability to learn and socialize, and undermines their development as functional adults and good parents later in life. People who experience maltreatment as children are more at risk for developing health conditions and chronic diseases as adults (heart disease, cancer, chronic lung disease, liver disease, stroke, diabetes, obesity, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and overall poor health. Maltreatment in childhood is also strongly correlated to unhealthy behaviours in adulthood, such as cigarette smoking, unhealthy eating, alcohol and drug abuse, depression, and attempted suicide.
