The aim of the Nu Räcker Det was to map out the models used in the Nordic countries to help the perpetrators of IPV to end violence. The project questionnaire was filled in by the service providers. The number of invited programmes was 68, and the response rate was around 80%. Results indicate that still some services are not free of charge and are not equally distributed geographically. In terms of safety, although most programmes contact the (ex-) partner at the beginning of the treatment, still half of the programmes do not contact the (ex-) partner during the treatment or at the end of it, moreover nearly half of the programmes do not use any risk assessment instrument. Outcome is measured by most of the programmes however partner and official reports should also be included. Finally, those results are compared and discussed in light of the European context.




Firstly, we would like to express our gratitude to the practitioners in each Nordic country who participated in this project by providing answers to our questionnaire at substantially high rate. We would like to thank prof. Juha Holma and Minna Piispa for their advice and input to the drafting of the project questionnaire. This final report owes to the country reporters who collected and combined the data from each country; Mariana Dufort (Sweden), Ask Elklit and Sarah Bogelund Dokkedahl (Denmark, Greenland and Faroe Islands), Kristín I. Pálsdóttir (Iceland) and Ingunn Rangul Askeland (Norway). The report on Finland and Åland Islands was compiled by Martta October.
