Abstract

Report on the state of the research on prevalence of Interpersonal violence, and its impact on health and human rights available in Europe
Interpersonal violence as a violation of human rights is an issue that has emerged recently and has started to be considered as a public problem for individuals, society and states. This has its origin in the universal declaration of Human Rights by the United Nations in 1948 and by successive declarations of the human rights of specific groups of populations such as women and children (Vienna, 1993; Beijing, 1995). Little by little, European countries are becoming aware of this societal problem that not only causes a great deterioration of the victim�s life but that are also a burden to the development of the countries through their high human and economic costs.
