  1. Submissions for the new National Strategy

Review on First National Strategy on Domestic, Sexual and Gender-based Violence 2010-2014 and proposals for the Second National Strategy

As part of the end-term review of the First National Strategy, Cosc circulated a questionnaire to almost 100 organisations and individuals in early March, 2014. It sought feedback on their experiences of the First National Strategy and requested input for the development of the next iteration of a national strategy on domestic, sexual and gender-based violence. Following a restricted call for tenders, a team from the University of Limerick (Dr. Eimear Spain, Ms. Sarah Gibbons and Prof Shane Kilcommins) was chosen to undertake a textual analysis of the 34 submissions received.
