This Special Issue focuses on domestic violence as a component of family law. What are the gaps between enactment of domestic violence laws, and implementation? What is the role of law enforcement in protecting victims of violence? To what extent do existing legal norms and doctrines need to yield to a modern understanding of human rights and gender equality, to make domestic violence laws effective?

Manuscripts are due by Oct. 1, 2016.
