The Violence Prevention Agreement

The Violence Prevention Agreement covers the prevention and combating of various forms of interpersonal violence. The main focus is on violence against children, while new topics include violence against the elderly and mental violence. Hate crimes, which have received less attention so far, have also been addressed to some extent.

The agreement sets out 14 measures for violence prevention. The agreement does not include a complete list of violence prevention activities. The focus is on problems that still need more attention or have so far been overshadowed or where the expected progress has not been made. The measures cover activities at different levels of prevention.
