A analysis of the economic costs to implement Albanian legislation against domestic violence, this study aims to help improve government domestic violence protection and prevention services delivery to victims. It hopes to raise awareness of the social costs of domestic violence and thereby promote domestic violence prevention and protection services.

The study is made up of two key reports: the first, analyses the costs to implement Albania’s law “On measures against relations in family violence”; the second, looks at the cost of coordination and referral mechanisms for cases of violence in family relations.

The study’s findings can guide government departments’ allocation of financial resources necessary for effective domestic violence prevention and protection services. They can also guide effective national level intervention by not-for-profit organizations in Albania.
