Abstract

Case studies and research regarding Domestic Violence have most commonly focused on female victims, as it is generally accepted that they are the gender most likely to suffer violence at the hands of a partner in today’s society. Research around male victims of Domestic Violence has focussed mainly on the societal issues which may prevent male victims from speaking out against the violence or harassment that they have suffered. This paper will take a different approach by looking at domestic abuse from the perspective of “minority” male victims and more specifically at the approach of Family Courts to applications for protection under Part IV Family Law Act 1996 by such victims.
