Fundament concerns arising from domestic abuse is a major issue that is affecting most parts of the world. The reported cases and trends of abuse in relationships and within families are increasing despite the improvement in rules and regulations about domestic violence. Despite the UK government enacting numerous regulations and rules, they have had minimal impact in reducing the rising rates of domestic violence. The dissertation focused on rates and trends of domestic violence in the UK despite the changes in regulations and how the government can improve its operations to mitigate the high rates. Furthermore, the dissertation found out the need for improvement in measures that the non-government organizations and the government have set in place to protect the victims of violence and reduce the cases of domestic abuse. The dissertation suggested that there is need to broaden the scope of awareness through educational programs. The government should adopt other measures that will aim at preventing the occurrence of such vices and safeguard the lives of victims.

The main purpose of this dissertation was to develop an understanding of the various prominent cases of domestic violence that exist in the UK over the past three decades. The paper focused on the various case scenarios that are prominent with both men and women as victims of domestic violence. Thus, the paper highlighted multiple contexts of domestic violence to show how men and women are victims especially women who are abused by their partners. The dissertation also found out the reason why women are the most affected in domestic violence, and most of them do to report such cases. The study made a comparative analysis of the various domestic violence cases and state laws to safeguard the victims between the UK and the US. The comparison helped in understanding the steps taken by the UK government to stop and reduce the cases of domestic violence in the country. The comparison was based on the United Nations standards, and this helped in giving a limelight on the legal structure of the UK and its initiative to reduce such cases. Many studies have focused on a comparison between the rates of domestic violence in other countries but have failed to compare the state laws in various countries and how they have reduced the rates of domestic violence.

The main aim of the dissertation study was to focus on the rates and trends of domestic violence in the UK for the past three decades despite an increase in the government efforts to enact more rules and regulations. The objectives of this study included:
  • To evaluate the impact of improved laws and regulations on the reduced cases of domestic violence in the UK for the past three decades
