The Swedish Prison and Probation Service took the initiative to explore, together with EuroPris and CEP, the possibility for establishing a joint expert group on the issue of domestic violence. A pre-meeting was organised in March in Stockholm with experts from Croatia, Belgium, England/Wales and Sweden to discuss current practices and gaps, also in relation to the provisions of the Council of Europe Istanbul Convention. After this meeting, an expert group was established.
