Commissioned by ‘Politie en Wetenschap’, Pauline Aarten, Assistant Professor at Leiden University, and Marieke Liem, Associate Professor at Leiden University, published their new research last week. The study "When barking dogs bite: A comparison between fatal and non-fatal domestic violence" investigated how fatal domestic violence (partner killing and child killing) can be distinguished from non-fatal domestic violence (partner abuse and child abuse).
