An extensive review on good practices regarding administrative data collection on domestic violence displays the several benefits of having a centralized domestic violence (henceforth DV) register, as long as the structures, practices and capacities for data collection and registering have a strong foundation. The need for a centralized DV register stems from the benefits of bringing together all the relevant data in a single location that is easily accessible to practitioners, policy makers as well as the public. Furthermore, extensive centralization ensures that the data is comparable between institutions in a country, over time, and, ideally, between countries. For this reason, the data collection must be harmonized with clear and common definitions for variables (EIGE 2016:10-1; UNDESA 2014:121-5). Ideally this will subsequently promote the assessment of domestic violence and thus assist in securing an adequate response to it.

This review will pay specific attention to Spain and Denmark which have an extensively centralized and harmonized system for administrative data collection (CoE 2019; EIGE 2016; GREVIO 2017). In addition to providing a more in-depth look at the aforementioned two countries, further examples from specific administrative contexts of other countries will also be highlighted, with the intention to point out effective and holistic practices that have stood out during the review.

The importance of Iran to Armenia cannot be understated. Still blockaded by neighbors Turkey and Azerbaijan, the Islamic Republic remains one of Armenia’s only access points to the outside world. This leaves Yerevan to navigate difficult diplomatic waters as tensions between Islamic Republic of Iran and the United States escalate to a near boiling point. After the United States unilaterally pulled out of the landmark Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) Iran has again become subject to sanctions which aim to severely damage Iran’s economy and limit its options for trading with key partners, such as Armenia. Armenia’s partnership with Iran remains also marked by Russian influence and the desire to regionally balance Azerbaijan and Turkey.
