Interagency working on domestic violence progressed much in the late 1990s, with the introduction of domestic violence units and formal multi-agency arrangements involving the police, local authorities and specialist non-statutory organisations. Innovative work in the United Kingdom is paralleled by developments elsewhere.

This book considers the policy implications of interagency approaches. It examines some of the theoretical concepts that underlie this work and brings together evaluations of innovative projects and examples of good interagency practice.
