This report focuses on the role inter governmental organisations (IGO's) have played, particularly scrutinizing the involvement of the European Union (EU), the Council of Europe (CoE), the United Nations (UN), and the Organisation for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE). This report does not focus solely on the IGO's recent action but explores the involvement in previous years, since 2000 as the earlier periods carry great importance. An in-depth analysis on the official communication amongst the two recognised states and the Republic of Artsakh with the international bodies seeks to address how and why Nagorno-Karabakh Republic continues to remain such a fragile issue; one with repercussions that pose a danger on a global scale. This research paper will investigate the major players, in this case both states and international organisations involved throughout the frozen conflict.

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.
