To improve the situation, it is necessary to

  • analyze the current legislation,
  • highlight the shortcomings thereof by way of recommendations,
  • support the signature of the Convention and
  • promote the adoption of two key laws that are mentioned in the Programme Declaration of the Government dated 13 February 2014, in a form which will improve the support for people threatened and affected by violence.
