The UN Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia recently released a study exploring intimate partner violence with particular focus on its economic impact. The study is focused in the Arab region and provides an evidence-based, comprehensive understanding of the human rights and socio-economic impact of intimate partner violence. In particular, the study explores links between IPV with social, cultural, economic, and health factors. The study acknowledges the continuum of forms of violence which include violence in private and public spaces, by husbands and other family and community members and State actors.
